    5. Talks of a general idea.
    4. Introduces the idea of perceiving einstein’s body.
    1. How do we create that percetion.
    3 and 2 talks of the things we can do with it.

    And 3 will have to precede 2 because 2 is in lieu of the idea introduced in 3.

  3. The answer is 51342.

    Sentence 5 is the most general sentence which works well as an opening sentence for the paragraph. The rest of the sentences about virtual embodiment may be seen as an illustration and use of sentence 5.

    Sentence 1. follows by introducing the phenomenon of virtual embodiment.

    Sentence 4 speaks of unlocking mental resources and therefore must follow sentence 3. which mentions scoring better on cognitive tests.

    Sentence 2. gives another benefit of the virtual reality experience of being in Albert Einstein’s body and uses the word ‘also’. Hence, it must succeed sentence 4.
