Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

All four sentences given talk of the painter Magritte. Sentence D is the only one that states his full name: René Magritte. So, this is the starting sentence of the paragraph.

Sentence D describes the painting, "“The Treachery of Images". Now, both C and A refer to the painting: C states what inspired Margritte "in painting this", while A states what Margritte achieved with the help of his iconic painting. But clearly, the pronoun reference--this-- in C relates to the painting described in D. So, C follows immediately after D.

Now, Sentence B states what Magritte wanted to prove, whereas A states what he did prove with his painting. So, A follows B.

DCBA is the right order.

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

Hence, the answer is DCBA

Choice D is the correct answer.
