Direction: In each of the following questions, choose the most appropriate sequence of sentences from the given choices.

  1. (i) The reality is that studies do not confirm such phases.
    (ii) There in an almost universally accepted perception that we must pass through certain phases in our processing of grief.
    (iii) Grief reactions never follow the simple stages often described in textbooks and other media in the public domain.
    (iv) This idea has its basis in the fact that well-known theorists many decades back wrote about these phases.
    (v) Since then, this has been repeated so many times and in so many contexts and in so many media that it has been believed as a fact.
    1. (iii) (ii) (i) (iv) (v)
    2. (ii) (iv) (v) (i) (iii)
    3. (iii) (iv) (ii) (i) (v)
    4. (ii) (v) (iv) (i) (iii)
Correct Option: B

Sentences (ii) and also (iii) are general statement worthy of opening sentence, but (ii) cannot follow (iii); 'such phases' of (i) connects with 'certain phases' of (ii).
