  • Correct Answer
    Choice D. DCAB

Detailed Solution

Sentence A tells us what characterizes hate speech. Sentence C tells us what is not tantamount to hate speech. There is an obvious link here. A follows C.

Sentence D tells us that the student body’s activism has been associated with hate speech by detractors. Again, we see a link with sentence C, which tells us that such an association is “spurious”. So C follows D.

Sentence B, which discusses what the management ought to do provides a conclusion to the paragraph.

So the correct sentence arrangement is DCAB.
