Sentence A cites the example of China, where the World Bank has been important not “quantitatively” but as a source of “blueprints and information”. Sentence B tells us that multilateral development institutions play an important role in global infrastructure financing. Sentence C talks of their greatest failures springing from “funding grandiose projects” that benefit those countries considered the current “elite”. Sentence D tells us that multilateral development institutions have been most successful as knowledge banks, sharing expertise. We can see that sentences A and D are of the same idea. The example of China substantiates the point made by sentence D that multilateral development institutions are most successful as knowledge banks. So which is the third sentence that fits in with A and D- B or C? Sentence D talks of the greatest successes of multilateral development banks and sentence C tells us of their greatest failures. Sentence B on the other hand stresses the importance of infrastructure financing by multilateral development banks, which does not relate to the main idea of the other two sentences- that the role of these institutions is more significant with regard to knowledge transfer. DCA make a paragraph. B is the sentence to be eliminated. Correct Answer: Choice (b)
