Q. 24: Q. Five jumbled up sentences, related to a topic, are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a coherent paragraph. Identify the odd one out and key in the number of the sentence as your answer:
1.You can observe the truth of this in every e-business model ever constructed: monopolise and protect data.
2.Economists and technologists believe that a new kind of capitalism is being created – different from industrial capitalism as was merchant capitalism.
3. In 1962, Kenneth Arrow, the guru of mainstream economics, said that in a free market economy the purpose of inventing things is to create intellectual property rights
4.There is, alongside the world of monopolised information and surveillance, a different dynamic growing up: information as a social good, incapable of being owned or exploited or priced.
5.Yet information is abundant. Information goods are freely replicable. Once a thing is made, it can be copied and pasted infinitely.
Correct Answer: 2
Let us try and find a common theme among the sentences.
Option 1 is about the monopolisation or the protection of data (information) in e-business companies.
Option 3 is about creation of intellectual property rights or once again protecting and monopolising data (information) that one invents.
Options 4 and 5 are also about different facets of information or data.
Therefore, sentences 1, 3, 4 and 5 are all about the different facets of information or data.
Sentence 2 is about a new kind of capitalism and does not mention any facet of information at all.
Hence, the correct answer is sentence 2.
