However, All the statements are completely comprehending with the theme of the paragraph except for statement (G). Statement (G) is simply describing an event in the sequence of the controversy occurred in 1988. Nonetheless, it fails to connect logically with the paragraph. Therefore, option (c) becomes a viable answer choice.

 

  1. If the statement (F), “This is the strongest affirmation so far of a basin State’s right to its share of water on a regular basis without having to rush to the court for ad hoc orders to open the sluices of reservoirs during monsoon-deficit years” is the last statement of the paragraph so formed after the rearrangement of other statements eliminating the incoherent statement, which of the following statements can follow the statement (F) eloquently?

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Option (a) is the correct choice. Being statement (F) the last one, its mentioning about the supreme court’s verdict to both the states about the dispute on the distribution of Cauvery water. Thus, the next statement should include the opinions and reactions of both the states regarding the verdict. Such information is only provided in option (a). All the other options do not logically follow the last statement i.e., statement (F) as they all are either describing a previous event of the verdict or fail to be interlinked with the theme of the paragraph. Hence, only option (a) is a viable choice.

 

  1. Considering statement (B), “By upholding the approach of the Cauvery Water Dispute Tribunal, while slightly modifying its award, the Supreme Court has boosted the prospects of a viable water-sharing arrangement among the riparian States.” as the first statement of the rearranged paragraph excluding the incoherent one, then which among the following combinations denotes the pair of consecutive statements i.e., the first sentence would be immediately followed by the second one?

(a) A-D

(b) E-C

(c) B-E

(d) D-A

(e) E-F

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. Option (b) is the correct choice. The correct sequence of the paragraph after rearrangement is BDECAF. Only statements (E) and (C) can be logically and meaningfully interlinked with each other. As, statement (E) is describing about the rivers being the national assets, whereas, statement (C) is describing about the principle which should be used for equitable distribution of inter-state rivers. Thus, together both the statements provide a coherence to the paragraph. Although, all the other statements belong to the same theme of the paragraph, the given combinations fail to be the consecutive statements. Thus, option (b) is the most suitable choice.
