There are only two options for the sentence to begin the paragraph with- sentence A and sentence C. Of these, we see that C makes a reference to “that evidence”, without explaining what it is. So we rule out sentence C as the first sentence of the paragraph. So the paragraph starts with sentence A. Now sentence A declares that Darwin did not discover the idea that species evolved or a model of evolution in the Galapagos islands. So what did he discover there? Sentence D answers this and states that he found a naturally occurring laboratory that helped him study and make a model of evolution, the first supported by real evidence. So D follows A. We see that sentence C too mentions ‘evidence’. It elaborates the idea in sentence D, describing the islands of the Galapagos as “perfect petri dishes” for generating the evidence Darwin needed. So C follows A. Sentence A, the last sentence, concludes the paragraph by stating that Darwin’s ability to see “this fact” — the Galapagos as petri dishes generating the evidence to support his model— is the reason why we remember him today. So the correct sentence order is ADCB. Correct Answer: ADCB
