The question below is from previous year CAT question from CAT 2018 exam comes from CAT Parajumble : Self-management is thus defined. Find out by answering this question which tests an aspirant’s CAT VARC skills:

CAT 2018 – Slot -2 - Question 1 - Self-management is thus defined

Q. 1: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. Self-management is thus defined as the ‘individual’s ability to manage the symptoms, treatment, physical and psychosocial consequences and lifestyle changes inherent in living with a chronic condition’.

2. Most people with progressive diseases like dementia prefer to have control over their own lives and health-care for as long as possible.

3. Having control means, among other things, that patients themselves perform self- management activities.

4. Supporting people in decisions and actions that promote self-management is called self- management support requiring a cooperative relationship between the patient, the family, and the professionals.

there is no doubt that statements 2 and 3 form a pair because they both speak of ‘having control’. statement 2 says ‘most people … prefer to have control…’, while statement 3 says ‘having control means…’. thus 2 and 3 form a pair. the idea of self-management is further elaborated on by ‘self-management support’, which has been introduced in statement 4. now we come to the placement of statement 1. as we see, statement 1 is not about self-management support, but about self-management. thus 1 must come before 4 because in 4 we have shifted our discussion from self-management to self-management support. thus 2314 is the right sequence. statement 1 is the intermediate conclusion for statements 2 and 3.
