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. The practice of persevering for a goal seems incredulous to them, and they seek refuge in drugs.

2. Consuming drugs to satisfy one’s immediate needs, and eluding a reality that has become too terrible to handle, has become a common trend.

3. Most youngsters who consume drugs — especially in the case of LSD — ingest small doses, a process called ‘micro-dosing’.

4.This stems from youngsters’ need for instant gratification.

5.They fallaciously assume that due to the almost negligible quantity, they will not experience any adverse effects.

    The answer is 24135.

    4 must be after 2 since it provides a reason for the trend (of consuming drugs to satisfy one’s immediate needs) is mentioned in 2. 4 will precede 1 due to the sequence of terms in 2- 2 mentions ‘immediate need’ first and ‘a reality that one wants to elude’ later.

    5 must succeed 3 since it contains a pronoun reference to 3, and is about the small quantity of drugs consumed.

    35241 is also a possible answer but the paragraph formed with 24135 is more coherent. 2 is more general than 3, thus a better introductory sentence for the paragraph.
