Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

Sentence D starts off talking of qualities that “today’s political class? does not have in abundance.

We see that Sentence A talks of risk taking and nerve. So it is likely that D follows A, possibly immediately after A.

But A does not make a good start to the paragraph.

At the outset, B and C both look like good sentences to start the paragraph.

Sentence C asserts that recasting economic problems as “moral? issues and an “erring on the part of selfish individuals who just aren’t giving enough back? leaves the real issues untouched.

There are 3 aspects to this statement- one, economic problems are a result of a failure to cut the deficit to the continued inability to restore conditions of growth; two, economic problems are wrongly recast as a moral lapse on part of selfish individuals who aren’t giving enough back; and three, this wrong approach does not solve the “real problems?.

Sentence B talks of the tendency to cavil at the tax affairs of the rich. It also suggests that those “carping? about the tax affairs of the rich would be better rewarded in raising tax revenues by increasing the volume of wealth that can be taxed.

We see a link emerging between B and. C talks of economic problems, the moralizing approach towards the rich (selfish individuals not giving enough back) and this not solving the real issue. Sentence B suggests than instead of complaining about the rich taxpayers, a different approach (raising taxable wealth) can increase tax revenues. This will provide a possible solution to the “real problem? mentioned in sentence C. B follows C.

We already saw the link AD, and noted A does not make a good start to the paragraph.

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

Hence, the answer is CBAD

Choice B is the correct answer.
