We have two possible starting sentences for the paragraph- A and C. However, we see that C introduces the phrase “Mandate of Heaven”, whereas A tells us what it is about. So A follows C and possibly comes immediately after C. Sentence B starts with “in other words”. So which sentence is it paraphrasing? Not A, this sentence only declares that the Mandate of Heaven indicated divine approval of a king’s right to rule. Sentence B paraphrases sentence D, which talks of the right to rule depending on the virtuous conduct of the ruler. So B follows D. The correct sentence order is hence CADB. Correct Answer: CADB
