CAT 2019 – Slot -2 - Question 5 - Conceptualisations of ‘women’s time’ as contrary

Q. 5: The four sentences (labelled 1, 2, 3, 4) given below, when properly sequenced would yield a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper sequence of the order of the sentences and key in the sequence of the four numbers as your answer.

1. Conceptualisations of ‘women’s time’ as contrary to clock-time and clock-time as synonymous with economic rationalism are two of the deleterious results of this representation.

2. While dichotomies of ‘men’s time’, ‘women’s time’, clock-time, and caring time can be analytically useful, this article argues that everyday caring practices incorporate a multiplicity of times; and both men and women can engage in these multiple-times

3. When the everyday practices of working sole fathers and working sole mothers are carefully examined to explore conceptualisations of gendered time, it is found that caring time is often more focused on the clock than generally theorised.

4. Clock-time has been consistently represented in feminist literature as a masculine artefact representative of a ‘time is money’ perspective.

it is clear that the paragraph is about clock-time and sentence 4 is the introductory sentence as it introduces the concept of clock time.

 

sentence 1 follows sentence 4 directly with “this representation” in sentence 1 referring to the feminist representation of clock-time.

 

sentences 3 and 2 are a pair. sentence 3 is about caring time for both men and women and sentence 2 concludes the paragraph by mentioning the different types of time which both men and women can engage in.

 

hence, the correct sequence is 4132.
