  1. Hi Admin,

    Can you (or anyone) explain in the second question, why the answer is BDECA and not BDEAC ?

    Sentence E has no reference or link with any of the remaining 4 sentences then how can we put it at the right place or position ?

    1. Hi Sandeep
      who was ambushed by Ed Tewksbury in Tempe, Arizona.
      to complete the paragraph option A is most viable as “Tewksbury spent a short time behind bars before being freed” He was punished for the crime.

      1. Hi Admin,
        Sorry, I guess I typed-in the wrong combination, what I was asking is I agree BD and CA is correct combo, but all I wanted to know how can I figure out that sentence E should come after ‘BD’ and not after ‘CA’……it seemed to me as one sort of a Secondary Independent Sentence that has no reference with the combo ‘BD’ and ‘CA’ ?

        Please don’t be annoyed this is something I really wanted to crack-down on, I mostly failed to figure this logic.
