S : saw
That is the passive subject of the sentence, thus R is the first part. The first film will logically follow.
Question 4 of 20
P : see us
Q : you must
R : and
S : come
Q contains the subject and will be the first part, ‘see us’ is the predicate containing the object and would therefore be last.
Question 5 of 20
P : by her indulgent parents
Q : the child was so spoiled
R : when she did not receive all of their attention
S : that she pouted and became sullen
Q contains the subject ‘the child’ and is thus the first part. P will follow Q because it is a passive sentence and the verb will be followed by the doer.
Question 6 of 20

R : the purpose of the meeting
S : is to introduce
R introduces the subject, S gives the verb and P and Q the predicate
Question 7 of 20
P : for the future
Q : and poses the major challenge
R : commercial energy consumption
S : shows an increasing trend
R is the opening sentence, since it introduces the subject, S describes what is said in R and thus will follow R. P will follow Q, because the preposition ‘for’ will follow ‘poses major challenge’ and combines S and Q, thus Q follows.
Question 8 of 20
P : that
Q : racialism
R : should be wiped out
S : people want
S is the opening sentence since it has the subject ‘people’. R contains the predicate and thus would be the last in the sequence. SPQR is the correct sequence.

P : is
Q : Hindu Sculpture
R : movement
S : full of
Q is the opening phrase, as it contains the subjects followed by the auxillary verb in P. Preposition can’t be last so S cannot be last thus R will follow S.
Question 10 of 20

Q : in reasonable proportion
R : advertising cost are
S : no longer
R is the opening part of the possible options P, Q and S, S is the most appropriate because adverb must follow the verb.
Question 11 of 20
P : unsurpassed power
Q : modem society
R : in
S : women enjoy
S is the opening part as it contains the subject, R should be followed by Q for the right use of preposition.
Question 12 of 20
P : Adventure Programmes
Q : adult programmes
R : more than
S : children watch
S contains the subject so is the opening part, since R is the comparative adjective, it will be between P and Q. According to the logic of the sentence Q will proceed P.
Question 13 of 20
P : checked regularly
Q : you should have
R : blood pressure
S : your
Q contains the active subject and is thus the opening part. P will be the last as it emphasises the ‘blood pressure’.
Question 14 of 20
P : she
Q : his phone number
R : didn’t know
S : she claimed
S contains the subject and so does P, but S will be taken as the opening part because, it is a sentence in reported speech thus S will be followed by P. Then followed by the verb R and predicate Q so the right answer is SPRQ.
Question 15 of 20
P : Indian
Q : earn as much
R : working women
S : as men
PR forms the subject of the sentence P being the adjective for the noun R ‘as’ in S, so the right sequence is PRQS

Q : there by upsets the way of men’s thinking and
R : science does not merely add new truths to the old ones, but
S : sometimes the new truth it discovers
T : the ways of their lives
R is the opening part containing the subject because the conjunction at the end of R is but the following sentence must be opposite to R in intent, that is P. But the subject of P is in S so RSP is the right sequence.
Question 17 of 20
P : equality before law and the right
Q : however money and all that money
R : today political freedom assures people
S : to elect their government
T : can buy is not fairly distributed
R is the opening part, S should follow P and T should follow Q logically.

Q : moreover, even agreeing with them completely is not considered good manners
R : in England it is not easy to keep up conversation with women in company;
S : nor can you ask them to give a reason for the opinion they profess;
T : you are also afraid of imposing your views upon them
R is the opening part, followed by P which gives the reason for the statement made in R and thus will be followed by S which is another condition alternate to that expressed in P. This will be followed by T and Q.

Q : he sent a few copies of the book to well-known poetry critics
R : shaw read the first few lines of the volume
S : and awaited their reaction
