I think 35412 is correct.

I think the correct order is 35241.

Even I got 35412. But 35241 makes more sense. The '3 approaches' key word is initiated in the first sentence (point 3) and is explained in the second (point 5). It makes more sense for point 2 to be the third sentence because it explains the type of people who use it.

Otherwise, it's too early to introduce point 4 into third place. Keeping point 2 in the last place might look correct because it compares against white collar's inefficiency but the '3 approaches' key word in the point 2 will be left ignored insensibly.
