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

  1. The $\text{US}$ has long maintained that the Northwest Passage is an international strait through which its commercial and military vessels have the right to pass without seeking Canada’s permission.
  2. Canada, which officially acquired the group of islands forming the Northwest Passage in $1880,$ claims sovereignty over all the shipping routes through the Passage.
  3. The dispute could be transitory, however, as scientists speculate that the entire Arctic Ocean will soon be ice-free in summer, so ship owners will not have to ask for permission to sail through any of the Northwest Passage routes.
  4. The $\text{US}$ and Canada have never legally settled the question of access through the Passage, but have an agreement whereby the $\text{US}$ needs to seek Canada’s consent for any transit.
