Find out by answering this question which tests an aspirant’s CAT VARC skills:

CAT 2018 – Slot -1 - Question 4 - The eventual diagnosis was skin cancer and after

Q. 4: The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, and 4) given in this question, when properly sequenced, form a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper order for the sentences and key in this sequence of four numbers as your answer.

1. The eventual diagnosis was skin cancer and after treatment all seemed well.
2. The viola player didn’t know what it was; nor did her GP.
3. Then a routine scan showed it had come back and spread to her lungs.
4. It started with a lump on Cathy Perkins’ index finger.

Sentence 4 is the best opening sentence: it sets the scene and tells us what ‘it started with’. The subject of sentence 2 is ‘the viola player’. This could only be Cathy Perkins, who is mentioned only in 4. So, 2 follows immediately after 4. Now, of the remaining sentences, 1 is a better option to follow 2 than 3. This is because sentences 2 and 4 talk of a medical condition. Sentence 1 mentions the ‘eventual diagnosis’ and response to treatment. So, 1 follows 2.­ Also, sentence 3 states that ‘it had come back’. The ‘it’ in question could only refer to the cancer mentioned in 1. So, 3 follows 1.

 

Hence, the answer is 4213.
