    4. BADC


  • Correct Answer
    Choice C. DCBA

Detailed Solution

We see straight away that there is a link between sentences C and B, both talking of "identity politics". It is also clear that C comes before B.

Let’s consider Sentence D. It talks of how battles over cultural values dominate politics. Sentence C talks of the main beneficiary of the “shift from explicit political clashes” to “culture war”. So it is clear that C follows D

Sentence A concludes the paragraph with “moral regulation” being the common goal of these otherwise different movements.

So the correct sentence order is DCBA

Correct Answer: DCBA
