  • The answer for EX-2 should be EDACB . Explanation: A introduces the olden day love affairs system, D explains how that system worked, ACB is then the logical sequence

  • In case of #2, E is best opening line then it should be followed by A as it continue the E statement further. Then C and B is combination and D should be conculding sentence. Therefore combination of paragraph supposed to be EACBD.
    Pls confirm.

    • Hi Rohit,

      There were some grammatical errors, I have fixed them. Please try again. May be you would want to change your response

      • Hello Author even I feel the answer for 2 para should be either EACBD or EDACB but not what you provided as there is no link in between those statements as per your answer.So please correct the answer.
        As per EACBD– it starts with telling about royal love and then story though with small hitch ended smothly.
        As per EDACB– it starts with royal love which should have a good ending but the example given tells there is a hitch so it ended without any answer for meeting from princess.
        SO please correct your answer.

  • DACB is not making any sense while the combination of ACB is good but there is a pronoun in D which is being used for farmer so this paragraph should start from a Common noun which is in A and correct order can be ACBD
