  • Dear Author,
    In the first question the answer should be BADC. Why is it BDAC? In my opinion, A follows B as A is talking about the categorization mentioned in B.
    If I am wrong, please correct me.
    Thank you.

    • D can not be the first sentence because it start from “This consisted mainly..” Here “This… ” is not explained. Therefore it is not the topic sentence. However B should be the first sentence. Then E comes after C. D describes about the training. A describes the outcome of D. So the answer is BECDA
