Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

The link between C and B—Tatars asking the Lithuanian grand duke for asylum and his granting it—is very strong.

While A is a general statement about Tatar people, D relates to the political developments discussed in the unit CB.

If A were to be the first sentence of the paragraph, then logically, the rest of the paragraph should discuss the Tatars as a group, in general terms . However, this is not the case. The other three sentences relate to how the Sunni Muslim Tatars helped change the geopolitics of the region. B, C and D do not give us details of the life of Tatars. Also, the flow of ideas from A to C or D is not smooth.

Now, if C were to be the first sentence of the paragraph, A will be pushed to the third or fourth in the order, as CB is a unit. This order does not sound right either.

So, the only possibility is to have D as the starting sentence of the paragraph. A then follows immediately after D. CB follows this. So, DACB is the right order.

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

Hence, the answer is DACB

Choice C is the correct answer.
