Sentence B talks of liberalism and how it decried government interference in markets. Notice that of the given sentences, B is the only sentence in past tense. It is likely that B is the first sentence of the paragraph. Now, considering the other three, the only sentence that links to B is D, which talks of neo-liberalism and how it believes in government intervention in markets, on the side of banks and financial institutions. D follows B, presenting the contrast between the two views. Sentence A talks of governments being expected to “save banks and financial institutions” when there is a crisis due to “financial speculation”. This relates to neo-liberalism. Sentence C refers to a “major shift”. What shift? The shift in thinking that governments should intervene in markets to favor financial institutions. So, C follows the sentence group BD. Now, while both A and C make sense immediately after D, C is a better choice to complete the paragraph, compared to A. Sentence A adds to D, providing more information on neo-liberalist thinking. C, on the other hand, sums up the key idea of the paragraph that neo-liberalism is very different from liberalism. BDAC is the correct order. Correct Answer: BDAC
