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. Such a belief in the harmony of nature requires a purpose presumably imposed by the goodness and wisdom of a deity
2. These parts, all fit together into an integrated, well-ordered system that was created by design
3. Historically, the notion of a balance of nature is part observational, part metaphysical, and not scientific in any way
4. It is an example of an ancient belief system called teleology, the notion that what we call nature has a predetermined destiny associated with its component parts

The right order is CDBA.

Remember, the right order is always the most coherent paragraph.

Here, Option C is the most apt opening argument. Option D follows this by defining teleology. Option B follows this, and the entire paragraph is concluded by Option A.
