Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

Sentences B and D hold the key to solving this question.

Sentence B says that at least in the rich world “that wasteful truth? has been overcome. What does this refer to?

Sentence A talks of elite American colleges now admitting men with lower grades just to even up the student numbers. Obviously this is not the “wasteful truth?.

Sentence C quotes Stendhal and says that all geniuses born women are lost to public good. This is the “wasteful truth? referred to in sentence B. So B follows C.

Sentence D talks of a “monumental advance?. Again, what does this refer to? The fact that geniuses born women are lost to public good has now been overcome in the rich word. So much so that, elite colleges are now admitting men with lower grades just to even up the numbers. So D follows A.

The question is " Arrange the sentences in the correct order "
The order is CBAD

Hence, the answer is CBAD

Choice C is the correct answer.
