Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

The sentences given relate to an idea called 'monopsony'. D defines this, so it is a good idea to solve this question starting from D.

D states that in a monopsony, there are many providers of a product, but only one dominant player who can drive prices down. C describes the effect of this in the labor market context: workers find it difficult to push for higher pay in a monopsony. So, C follows D.

Now, B talks of monopsony in the past tense, as a key feature of the company towns that helped define the Industrial Revolution. A, on the other hand, explains why, more recently , the issue of monopsony has arisen once again . Chronologically, A follows B.

So, we now have two units- DC and BA. Which of these goes first? DCBA is a better order than BADC, as D defines the term that is the main idea of the paragraph.

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

Hence, the answer is DCBA

Choice C is the correct answer.
