C. Sans Forgetica is sleek and back-slanted with intermittent gaps in each letter, which serve as a simple puzzle for the reader.
D. People remember things better when their brains have to overcome minor obstacles while processing information.
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.

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.
