Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

Sentences B and C relate to Sans Forgetica. Of these, B is the one that introduces us to Sans Forgetica, describing it as a "new font". So, B precedes C.

Now, B states that Sans Forgetica has been "based on this idea". What could this idea be? D provides the answer: people remember things better when they have to overcome some minor obstacles while processing information. So, B follows D.

Consider A. It states that the reader's mind tries to complete "the shapes". It is not clear from the unit DB what these shapes are. However, C, which describes Sans Forgetica as a font with "intermittent gaps in each letter" clarifies what A refers to. Sans Forgetica has letters with intermittent gaps in them. While reading this font, the reader's mind seeks to complete the shapes. So, A follows C.

Putting these together, we see that DBCA is the right order.

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

Hence, the answer is DBCA

Choice B is the correct answer.
