Directions (6-10): Given sentences are not in their exact position. Rearrange them to make a coherent paragraph and then answer the questions given below.

 

(A) Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has reportedly stated that the European Union would react “within a few days” in response to any action taken to protect the US steel industry.

(B)In its latest Union budget, the government of India has proposed to almost double its import duties on inter alia labour-intensive sectors, such as beauty aids, watches, toys, among others, to 20%.

(C) Similarly, a global tariff of at least 7.7% on all aluminum imports from all countries has been endorsed.

(D) The import restrictions have been made under the “national security” provision of US trade laws and are intended to increase domestic production.

(E)The US’ department of commerce has recently recommended a review of the policy on imports of steel and aluminum products.

(F) It has suggested a global tariff of at least 24% on all steel imports from all countries and a tariff of at least 53% from 12 countries, including India.

 

  1. Considering statement (E) “The US’ department of commerce has recently recommended a review of the policy on imports of steel and aluminum products.” as the first sentence of the paragraph then which one among the following becomes the last sentence to make the paragraph coherent?

(a) A

(b) C

(c) B

(d) E

(e) D

Answer & Explanation
Ans. a

Exp. As provided in the question, statement (E) is the first statement of the paragraph in which the US department’s recommendation on the review of import policies of aluminum and steel has been suggested. Sentence (E) and (F) forms a coherent pair as sentence (F) is conveying the facts brought out after the review of import policy. Sentence (C) is consecutively following sentence (F). Moreover, sentence (D) and (A) are forming a contextually logical pair. Thus, sentence (A) becomes the last sentence of the paragraph as it describes about the statement made by Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission on the import policies. However, sentence (B) fails to connect with the theme of the paragraph as it is describing about import duties levied in India in various sectors.  Therefore, with the elimination of sentence (B) the sequence thus formed is EFCDA.  Hence, option (a) becomes the most suitable answer choice.

 

  1. If statement (E) “The US’ department of commerce has recently recommended a review of the policy on imports of steel and aluminum products”is the first sentence of the paragraph then which among the following does not coherently relate to the paragraph after the rearrangement?

(a) D

(b) C

(c) A

(d) B

(e) F

Answer & Explanation
Ans. d

Exp. As statement (E) is the first sentence of the paragraph, it provides a hint for the theme of the paragraph which is about the import trade policies for steel and aluminum implemented by US. The sequence of the paragraph is EFCDA. Along with the first sentence i.e., statement (E) which states about the review on the policies of imports on steel and aluminum, all the other coherent statements also describe about the tariffs on steel and aluminum imports in US. Therefore, only option (d) i.e., statement (B) does not follow the theme of the paragraph as it is describing about the import duties levied by India in various sectors.

 

  1. Which one of the following statements should consecutively follow statement (F)?

(a) A

(b) B

(c) C

(d) D

(e) E

Answer & Explanation
Ans. c

Exp. The sequence of the paragraph is EFCDA. Therefore, statement (C) follows statement (F) as statement (C) is further describing about the facts described in statement (F) about the import tariffs implemented in US. Thus, option (c) is the correct answer choice.

 

  1. Which one of the following is the FOURTHstatement of the paragraph after rearrangement?

(a) F

(b) B

(c) A

(d) D

(e) E

Answer & Explanation
