Verbal Ability - Ordering of Sentences - Discussion
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:||You know my wife, Madhavi, always urged me to give up smoking.|
|P :||I really gave it up.|
|Q :||And so When I went to jail I said to myself I really must give it up, if for no other reason than of being self-reliant.|
|R :||When I emerged from jail, I wanted to tell her of my great triumph.|
|S :||But when I met her, there she was with a packet of cigarettes.|
Now come to option B--> start with S which is not possible because last sentence describe about poor girl and S describes about a girl (who is poor).
So ultimately answer is C :).
So [s] should come just before s6.
S begins with 'But', so there must be any contrary statement before. So R precedes S always(RS).
Now R is talking about getting out of the jail and Q is talking about getting into jail. So definitely Q comes before RS.
Hence our sequence will be QRS.
Now in Q he decided to quit the cigarettes, So he quitted the cigarette. This is said in the P statement. so P follows Q.
Hence our jumbled sentence should be QPRS.
It may be RSPQ.
