Q. 1: The four sentences (labelled 1,2,3,4) given in this question, when properly sequenced, form a coherent paragraph. Each sentence is labelled with a number. Decide on the proper sequence of order of the sentences and key in this sequence of four numbers as your answer:
1. Impartiality and objectivity are fiendishly difficult concepts that can cause all sorts of injustices even if transparently implemented.
2. It encourages us into bubbles of people we know and like, while blinding us to different perspectives, but the deeper problem of ‘transparency’ lies in the words “…and much more”.
3. Twitter’s website says that “tweets you are likely to care about most will show up first in your timeline…based on accounts you interact with most, tweets you engage with, and much more.”
4. We are only told some of the basic principles, and we can’t see the algorithm itself, making it hard for citizens to analyse the system sensibly or fairly or be convinced of its impartiality and objectivity..
this is an average difficulty question. right from the start we can sense that sentence 1 is likely to start the paragraph. it introduces the idea of ‘impartiality and objectivity’. sentences 2,3 and 4 form one unit because they all revolve around twitter. the algorithm that statement 4 talks about must be about algorithm that twitter would be using. the pronoun ‘it’ in statement 2 refers to twitter. thus 2 must come after 3. 32 is a pair. the problem of transparency in statement 2 is further elaborated in statement 4. statement 2 says that the problem of transparency lies in something…statement 4 takes over by saying ..we are only told some of the basic principles..(the problem of transparency is continued).
