B is the obvious choice to start the paragraph as it sets the context--what happens when an ant comes across a gap in its path? It slows down. Sentence A starts with a 'but' and doesn't fit after B. D talks of 'the process' of ant getting trampled and freezing in place repeating itself. The process of trampling and freezing in place is not obvious from B. So, D too is not a good option after B. Only E, which explains how the rest of the colony, unaware of what the first ant knows, barrels along, trampling over its back, seems to be a good choice to follow B. Now, after BE, A makes the best sense, as it explains that the ant 'simply stays put' after getting trampled upon. D takes this further, explaining how the process repeats itself and C sums up the paragraph. Correct Answer: BEADC
