DIRECTIONS (Qs. 1 - 10): In this section each question consists
of six sentences of a passage. The first and sixth sentences are
given in the beginning as S1 and S6. The middle four sentences
in each have been jumbled up and labelled P, Q, R and S. You
are required to find the proper sequence of the four sentences
and mark your response accordingly on the Answer Sheet.
: There have been many stories of porpoises saving
: Marine scientists point out that the porpoise's spirit
of play is responsible for such incidents.
P : 'When I got to my feet no one was near, but in the
water about 18 feet out a porpoise was leaping about.'

coast when an undertow pulled her down.
R : 'I felt something give me a terriffic shove up on to the
beach', she says.
S : 'A man standing nearby said that the porpoise had shoved me ashore.'
The correct sequence is QRPS. The sentence $S_
about there are many stories of porpoises saving
human lives. The next sentence should be Q because
it starts describing a story about the porpoises (fish)
saving a life of a woman and how suddenly she felt a
pull downward in the water. The next sentence should
be R where the woman tells how something pushed
her up. The next sentence should be P describing that
when the woman came on shore, she saw no body
who would have helped her but a porpoise who was
jumping and taking a leap in the water. The last
sentence should be S because it tells that man told the
woman that she was helped by a porpoise.
The correct sequence is RPSQ. The sentence $S_
about that the ancient Rome did not got its glory
suddenly in a day or two. The next sentence should
be R because it tells that it took several years to build
the architecture and city of Rome. Now this thing is
related to how every great thing takes time. Thus the
next sentence should be P. the sentence following P
should be S because it describes how to achieve
something we should not expect miracles suddenly.
The last sentence should be Q because it completes
the previous sentence that without expecting miracles
in a day, we should work with patience and
The correct sequence is QSRP. The sentence $S_
about a bus being stopped. Next sentence should be
the one in continuation and describing what happened
next. And therefore the next sentence should be Q.

describes further events that both the man and woman
took their seats. Now as we can see, the sentence $S_
talks about conductor and so does the sentence P.
Hence P should come before the sentence $S_
sentence R should follow sentence S because it talks
about the woman who we have described in the
The correct sequence is SQPR. The sentence $S_
describes about James Watt and his invention. The
next sentence should be S because it syncs the
invention of James Watt and how other men have
invented railway engines. The next sentence should
be Q because it describes about the other related
invention of petrol engine. After that sentence P
should follow because it is in continuation of sentence
Q regarding petrol engines. The last sentence should
be R because it describes how invention of motor
vehicles have eased the transportation
The correct sequence is SPQR. The sentence $S_
describes about that man asks clerk to get his trousers
altered. The next sentence should be S because usually
when the salesman asks for a fee receipt in case of
exchange and alterations. The next sentence should
be P because it is in continuation of the last sentence
where the man replies to the salesman that he does not
have the receipt. The next sentence should be Q
wherein because after the salesman denies alteration
without receipt, the clever man decides to return it to
and get his money back. The last sentence should be
R which precedes $S_
and describes how the clever
man returned the trouser and bought it back with.
The correct sequence is RQSP. The sentence S
about that the lions used to be widely distributed in
Asia and Africa. It talks about past tense. The next
sentence after $S_
should be R because it contrasts the
statement with the situation today. The next statement
should be Q which gives the reason for the drastic fall
of number of lions. S and P should follow the Q
statement because it draws the outcome that if the
lions survive, that can be done only in national parks
and various such areas are reserved for animals in
every country. The last statement $S_
syncs with P and
explains that no hunting is allowed in such reserved
: The woman who lives a nor mal life is able to check the
swelling conceit and egotism of her menfolk simply
because her outlook is so different.
: And both ranges of interest make her what only fools
deny her to be, namely, essentially practical; her eye
is steadily fixed on the concrete thing, and she
mistrusts that chasing of the wild goose which is one
of the chief pastimes and delights of man.
P : She is primarily concerned with little ordinary things,
the minutiae of talk and behaviour for example, on the
one hand, and with very big ones, the colossal
elementary facts of life, such as birth, mating and death
on the other.
Q : The first are personal and particular; whereas the
second, those enormous facts about life which women
are never allowed to lose sight of, are, of course,
universal, meaning just as much in the Fiji Islands as
they do here.
R : Her interests are at once narrower and wider than
those of men.

more impersonal. The next sentence should be R

with statement $S_

are described in $S_

about how Martin Luther King and his followers
suffered, is difficult to describe. The next sentence

sentence because it is in sync with the$ S_
