Tip 2: When required to arrange jumbled words to form a meaningful sentence, it is often easier to eliminate incorrect options

Question:

People

(P) At his dispensary

(Q) Went to him

(R) Of a11 professions

(S) For medicine and treatment

Options:

A)  RQSP B) QPRS C) QRPS D) RPQS

Answer:

QPRS: People went to him at his dispensary of all professions… (Incorrect)

QRPS: People went to him of all professions… (Incorrect)

RPQS: People of all professions at his dispensary went to him … (Incorrect)

The sentences formed by options B, C and D are incoherent and can be eliminated. Thus, the right option is ‘A’: People of all professions went to him for medicine and treatment at his dispensary.


Tip 3: When combining sentences to form a paragraph, ensure that there is a logical flow

Question: The first and sixth sentences are already given. The four sentences in the middle have been removed and jumbled up. These are labelled as P, Q, R and S. Find out the proper order for the four sentences.

1: What are the causes of our chronic food shortage?

P: To find food for these growing new millions is desperate task.

Q: Every year, we add more than a crore of persons to our population.

R: Despite stupendous efforts by our government, the population is growing unabated.

S: The chief cause is population explosion.

6: This unprecedented growth can drag us to the doors of starvation very soon

Answer:

The Question in 1(“What are the causes of our chronic food shortage?“) is logically followed by S (“The chief cause is population explosion”) as the answer.

After offering the answer in S, some further explanation is given in the form of Q and P.

Sentence 6 speaks about “unprecedented growth” and this must be referring to the population growth referred to in R, which implies that R must immediately precede 6.

Thus, the order of the sentences to form a logically coherent paragraph is 1: S, Q, P, R : 6
