      1. How you do we know if these are 100% accurate. For instance, I feel cedab is the logical sequence for third passage because – before saying ‘these authors’, the passage should be talking about a particular author which is done in ‘d’; so ‘a’ should follow d and since ed and ab are logical pairs with c as starting point, it should have been cedab

        1. Ms. Asha:- I had the exact same answer like yours “cedab” and I have the same question on my head too. That how do we know that the answers provided are `100 % accurate. Since they are without any explanation.

  4. You did a great job. Kudos! But it is exclusively mentioned in the PTE syllabus that “RE-ORDER PARAGRAPHS”. People should remember that it is not sentence !! It is paragraph they are talking about
