Sentence Rearrangement - The Right to be Forgotten

  • Correct Answer
    Choice A. CADB

Detailed Solution

Sentence C introduces the “right to be forgotten”, so it is likely to be the first sentence of the paragraph.

It says that Europeans, under this right, are allowed to ask search engines to delist certain links from search results.

Sentence A also talks of delisted links. It explains that delisted links are no longer readily available to the public through a simple search. So A follows C.

Sentences B and D offer contrasting views on the right to be forgotten. Whilst sentence D voices the concerns of campaigners of freedom of expression, sentence B talks of the stance of the supporters. B follows D.

So the correct order is CADB.

Correct Answer: CADB
