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. This multiyear supply deal will enable No.3 US mobile carrier T-mobile to deliver the first nation-wide 5G services.
  2. But cash-strapped telecom operators around the world have been gun-shy over committing to commercial upgrades of existing networks, with many seeing 5G technology simply as a way to deliver incremental capacity increases instead of new features.
  3. In a $3.5 billion deal, Nokia will supply T-Mobile with its next-generation 5G network gear which includes the AirScale radio access platform as well as cloud-connected hardware, software and acceleration services.
  4. The update promises to make networks more responsive and reliable for the eventual development of new industrial automation, medical monitoring and driverless cars.
  5. The T-Mobile award is critical to Nokia’s financial health and is concrete evidence of a new wireless upgrade cycle taking root.

      Priyanka, you were able to identify the linked sentences- 54 and 31. That’s good. Keep at it! 🙂

  1. Mayank Khanna

    The paragraph talks about :
    The deal between Nokia and Tmobile deal and how it is precieved in market

    3- A good opening and begins with introduction to a deal
    1- Talks about the benefit of this deal in future.
    5- Presents the idea of upgrade wireless cycle .
    4- What the update promise ( good thing)
    2- But what it is believed to do in reality by market.

  2. I found this one very confusing.I just could decipher that there are 2 mandatory pairs-3&1 and 4&2 .But I couldn’t understand where 5 would be placed.

    1. TG.Prabhat

      It was a tough one, Shubhra. If you look more closely, you’ll see that 54 is also a pair, since 5 brings in the aspect of the ‘upgrade’ and 4 continues the narrative with what the update promises.

  3. TG.Prabhat

    10 correct answers out of 15. This was a lengthy and somewhat difficult parajumble. I’d have to pull something special out of my parajumble-making repertoire to come up with a harder, yet doable one. Everyone, who got it right- excellent! 🙂

    With TRAI giving the go-ahead to a mega spectrum auction for 5G waves, worth over Rs.5 trillion, we’ll get to see some big-ticket tech deals in India too.

    Before I forget, the answer to the question is 31542.
    The paragraph is about the world’s largest 5G deal so far. 3 introduces it. 1 gives more information about the supply deal. Sentence 5 follows with more details about the relevance of the deal, and initiates the discussion on the deal being an upgrade. 4 mentions what the update has in store. 2 states why companies have been apprehensive of going in for the upgrade.
