Para Jumble or Sequencing questions can be make or break questions! That’s because one, you either get all five questions following the paragraph right or all of them wrong if you make a wrong arrangement. Two, these can be time consuming and engaging at the same time!

A paragraph from a news article or a book or any other literature is generally broken into six sentences. After rearrangement of those, we are required to answer five questions based on the same rearrangement.

How to attempt?

  • Read all the sentences neutrally first! Neutrally means do not try to make an opinion about every sentence in the first reading whether it would be the first or the last etc….. Honestly, if it has to be the first you would be able to figure that out with ease
  • Look for chronology. Like, if it talks about years then you get a hint. Same is the case with dates and months. Words like; Firstly, Secondly, Earlier, Later, Before, After can be good hints for forming a near to accurate sequence
  • If a paragraph talks about people; the sentences containing the Full name or the First name would come before the sentence containing only the Last name
  • Try to make links between sentences and arrange those links rather than arranging each sentence. A bundling or link may be easier to make a story
  • Read the whole paragraph and try to understand the story formed before marking the answers

All that is said above becomes easy if you are a regular reader. One who reads always has an edge over the ones who doesn’t. Reading helps us understand the idea and connect the dots better.

NOTE: Do not get emotional with these questions. Spend only an economical amount of time on these! Know when to leave and move on to the next!!

Below are few questions for your practice. Detailed solutions and hints would be discussed in the next post once you all try them all by yourselves.

Good Luck! 🙂
