Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

The link between sentences B and D is easy to spot. Sentence B talks of the situation twenty years ago, when athletes could do as they pleased and the nightly news featured only “monumental” dustups. Sentence D talks of the situation today: athletes have signed up for “24 hour a day news conference” on the social media. Clearly, D follows B.

Sentence A states that while they may not be role models, athletes are certainly “digital lighting rods” i.e. they attract a lot of criticism, which may not quite be justified. This idea ties in with the one made by sentence D, that athletes are being monitored by the social media round the clock.

Sentence C says that while athletes may want the freedom to speak freely without damaging their paychecks, “that’s not how it works”. Again, we see that sentence C refers to the constant scrutiny the social media subjects athletes to.

In terms of sentence ordering, it makes sense to start the paragraph with B (how athletes could get away with doing what they wanted earlier, unless the news was “monumental”), then D (how they are closely monitored today) and then C, as C tells us that though they would prefer to express themselves freely without hurting their paychecks, that’s now how it works today. Sentence A sums up the present day situation: athletes may not be role models, but they’re certainly digital lightning rods.

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

Hence, the answer is BDCA

Choice A is the correct answer.
