Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

Both A and C are contenders for the first sentence of the paragraph.

We see that D explains the word ‘meltdown’ mentioned in A. So, D follows A.

B talks of a ‘short-term emergency painkiller’. What does this refer to? The emergency liquidity provided by the world’s leading central banks in 2008, that is mentioned in A. So, B too follows A.

Which of these is a better fit immediately after A? D is, as it explains what would have happened if the emergency liquidity wasn’t provided at that time. Also note that D uses the same tense as A, in explaining what ‘would have’ happened.

So, we have the order ADB.

Consider sentence C. Though both A and B make sense after C, we already know that ADB is a unit. So CADB is the right order.

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

Hence, the answer is CADB

Choice B is the correct answer.
