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. Living things—animals and plants—typically exhibit correlational structure
  2. Adaptive behaviour depends on cognitive economy, treating objects as equivalent
  3. The information we receive from our senses, from the world, typically has structure and order, and is not arbitrary
  4. To categorize an object means to consider it equivalent to other things in that category, and different—along some salient dimension—from things that are not

The right order is BDCA.

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

By reading these sentences, we know that they are all about adaptive behaviour. Therefore, Option B would open the argument. This is followed closely by Option D which explains in further detail what exactly “...to consider it equivalent to...” means. Option C then tells us more about structural “information we receive from our senses”. Option A tells us which kind of structure “living things” exhibit and concludes the paragraph.
