Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Sentence Rearrangement:

We can directly rule out option D as sentence B does not provide a good start to the paragraph. It starts with “the bloody upheavals and wars”, suggesting that a reference to wars or conflict has been made earlier in the paragraph

Also note that sentence C mentions “this era”, so it is unlikely to be the starting sentence of the paragraph, so we can rule out option 3.

Sentence D talks about how the extraordinary management of conflicts makes the cold war remarkable.Sentence C continues the same thought, that despite the rhetoric of this era, it was marked by “relative peace”. So C follows D.

It is clear that sentence B substantiates the point regarding peace, by talking of how the bloody conflicts at the time of the Cold War were in other parts of the world, and due to Western colonialism rather than the cold war. So B follows C.

Sentence A talks of “an understanding” that underpinned the Cold War allowing America and Russia to maintain their influence over their respective worlds. Clearly, it is this premise of the Cold war which gave the players the ability to manage conflict. Sentence A leads to D.

So the correct order of arrangement is ADCB

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

Hence, the answer is ADCB

Choice A is the correct answer.
