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. A separate collection system for biodegradable plastic would need to be set up in order for the shift to really work, and that would involve millions in investments from states.

2. There are alternatives to plastic straws, like bio-degradable straws, but they are much pricier.

3. Activists, however, fear that biowaste may end up in the oceans- much like plastic has for decades.

4. This is one reason for Europe’s top plastic straws manufacturer Soyez being uncertain about how to make the transition.

5. Experts, meanwhile, warn that biodegradable plastics may not be a miracle solution anyway.

    The answer is 24513.

    2 is the most appropriate introductory opening sentence since it doesn’t contain a reference to another sentence, or a transition word. 4 must succeed 2 as 2 contains the reason (alternatives being much pricier) that 4 refers to. It seems that 4 could succeed 1 but Europe’s top straw manufacturer making the transition has not got a direct relation to millions in investments being required from states. 5 succeeds 4 as it continues in the same vein with experts also uncertain.1 provides a reason for the experts being unsure. 3 concludes the paragraph with activists’ concerns about how biowaste could end up.
