The five sentences (labelled 1,2,3,4, and 5) given in this question, when properly sequenced, form a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper order for the sentences and key in this sequence of five numbers as your answer.

  1. That scene encapsulates this Phantom Pictures’ adaptation.
  2. This does not make it less painful, but at least on the page, one is spared the harrowing cries of the dying animal.
  3. In the original novel, however, the poor creature is thrown out of a moving car.
  4. In the first scene of the Netflix adaptation of Vikram Chandra’s novel, Sacred Games, Jojo Mascarenhas’ pomeranian is thrown outside an apartment building by her consort Ganesh Gaitonde.
  5. Packed with darkness, the show has an aura of respectability while being purportedly seductive.

    4- The only opener we have, it talks about the first scene
    1- It is based on the idea of the scene
    5- It talks about the show in general
    3- It is the turning point and talks about the novel
    2- The point talks about show

      Thanks for sharing your approach, Mayank.
      I’ll confirm your answer after posting the solution tomorrow. 🙂

    2. TG.Prabhat

      That’s off the mark, Mayank. But, don’t worry. See the explanation to the answer, in my comment below.

      Write back to me in case you have any doubts 🙂

      1. I have answered few parajumbles questions correctly sir.

        Could you please suggest me some ways in which I could improve my parajumbles.

        1. TG.Prabhat

          The skills required to solve parajumble questions are basic reasoning and recognizing reading coherence. Ensure that you know all the clues needed to unjumble a paragraph (connecting words, tenses, ideal flow i.e. general to specific, etc.) and read editorials regularly. Keep practicing and, most importantly, learning from your mistakes. This should definitely improve your accuracy, Shivam.

      The answers are in my comments, Poojitha- usually at the end of the thread 🙂

    43215 because 4 seems to be a beginning sentence.Then the same scene is being talked about in sentence 3.sentence 2 just compares the novel and series version.sentence 1 and 5 consequently seem to be the next logical pair .

  3. TG.Prabhat

    The answer is 41325.

    Talking about the ‘first scene’, replete with full names and devoid of any pronoun references, sentence 4 is the most appropriate introductory sentence.

    Sentence 1 refers to the scene mentioned in sentence 4.

    Sentence 3 contrasts the scene to how it’s written in the novel.

    Sentence 2 compares the novel’s version of the scene with the show’s version.

    Sentence 5 concludes the paragraph with a general description of the show.

    1. Mayank Khanna

      Thank you for the answer sir. I have a doubt in it , point 5 talks about the show . So in writing the order shouldn’t we put 5 after 41 which both are points about show only. In that sense 5 should be after 41
      Is it the context is about a particular scene so first we focus on that scene in series then in novel and end with a general statement .
      Which approach is correct or both are incorrect?

      1. TG.Prabhat

        The second approach is correct Mayank, seeing the language used in the sentences.
        The flow of the paragraph is as follows- it starts by introducing the show and describing a particular scene, moves on to contrasting that scene with the novel’s version and concludes with a general comment on the show.
