Discussion :: Ordering of Sentences - Section 1 (Q.No.71)

In questions below, each passage consist of six sentences. The first and sixth sentence are given in the begining. The middle four sentences in each have been removed and jumbled up. These are labelled as P, Q, R and S. Find out the proper order for the four sentences.


S1: Sun birds are among the smallest of Indian birds.
P : Though they are functionally similar to the humming birds of the New World, they are totally unrelated.
Q : They do eat insects too.
R : They are also some of the most brilliantly coloured birds.
S : sun birds feed on nectar mostly and helped in pollination.
S6: Our common sun birds are the purple sun bird, the glossy black species and purple rumped sun bird, the yellow and maroon species.

Why option B is wrong? can anyone explain clearly?

Option B appears more appropriate. Since S1 starts with "sun birds" there is no need to use "sun birds" again in the next sentence. It seems odd to again write "sun birds" as will be the case according to the given answer.

RP is the complementary pair so option B is correct.

Is PSQR makes sense?

Kartik Agarwal said: (Nov 26, 2016)  
R will definitely come in last because it is about the colour of the bird and S6 is an explanation of the types of colour the bird can have. So they are a complimentary pair.

Is PSQR make sense here?
