The four sentences (labelled $1, 2, 3, 4$) given below, when properly sequenced would yield a coherent paragraph. Decide on the proper sequence of the order of the sentences and key in the sequence of the four numbers as your answer.

1. Conceptualisations of ‘women’s time’ as contrary to clock-time and clock-time as synonymous with economic rationalism are two of the deleterious results of this representation
2. While dichotomies of ‘men’s time’, ‘women’s time’, clock-time, and caring time can be analytically useful, this article argues that everyday caring practices incorporate a multiplicity of times; and both men and women can engage in these multiple-times
3. When the everyday practices of working sole fathers and working sole mothers are carefully examined to explore conceptualisations of gendered time, it is found that caring time is often more focused on the clock than generally theorised
4. Clock-time has been consistently represented in feminist literature as a masculine artefact representative of a ‘time is money’ perspective

The right order is 4, 1, 3, 2.

A coherent paragraph should have a sound opening statement and supporting arguments to follow it, and a final concluding statement.

Option 4 makes for a strong opening statement from the “time is money” perspective. Option 1 contradicts this sentence by mentioning that this economic rationalism is “deleterious”. [Here, deleterious(adj): harmful]

Option 3 then further supports the argument for “gendered time”. Option 2 is a final concluding statement which ends this argument.
