Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

This is a tricky sentence rearrangement question.

Sentence B suggests that a “fund-starved? country like India should not worry about foreign institutional investment which will come and go based on the external environment.

Sentence D talks of finding ways to protect the Indian economy from “external vicissitudes?.

Sentence B offers a possible solution to the problem of foreign investment ebb and flow based on the environment outside. So B follows D, possibly immediately after.

Sentence D talks of a “new normal? kind of environment. Let us look at the other sentences to see what this could be referring to.

Sentence A talks of continued monetary easing by some nations and shrinking global trade.

Sentence C talks of how it is up to the political bosses to kick start the economy, as “everyone? is waiting for the other to act first.

Either of the two sentences above could be the “new normal? environment.

If we take the “new normal? environment to refer to the continued monetary easing and shrinking global trade, we have the sentence order ADB. The only answer option with this sequence is a) ADBC. This makes a cogent paragraph.

If we take the “new normal? environment to refer to “everyone waiting for the other to act first?, we have the sentence order CDB. The answer option with this sequence is b) CDBA. This however, does not make a cogent paragraph, as there is no logic in sentence A following sentence B. In fact, considering just sentences A and B, it is clear B follows A. Sentence A sets a context. Sentence B suggests what should be done in this context.

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

Hence, the answer is ADBC

Choice A is the correct answer.
