PTE Reorder Solution with Explanation – So technically, if you don’t know the meaning of difficult words, use our technique to identify the order of paragraphs.
Let’s find First Sentence –
Point (A) – Without debate the assembly “something” adopted equality of taxation and “something” of all “something” rights except for those involving personal “something” – which were to be “something” without “something”. So all we understood this paragraph – Without debate there was an assembly which adopted equality of taxation and did something to the rights, except for some people. So technically this can’t be first because they have mentioned “The assembly”. There must be the name of an assembly for this paragraph in the previous paragraph because whenever we use the word “The assembly” means that particular thing is already introduced in the previous paragraph.
Point (B) – In the second paragraph, we got three things – A timeline, Name of an assembly and they have abolished something in this.
Point (C) – In this, we got timeline “November 1789” and point (B) contain August 1789. Point (C) also includes “Abolished in September 1790” and something vanished overnight. There were some old laws they have vanished.
Point (D) – In this, they have mentioned about some “Other Proposals”, so this can’t be the first one.
So out of these four, point (B) is the first sentence. Why? First because of the timeline “August 1789” and point (C) include “September 1789”. The second factor – Point (B) gives us “Name of an Assembly”. So point (B) is the first sentence.
Let’s find the second sentence –
Point (A) – Without debate the Assembly – adopted something, just do something for the right of people and something also abolished. Something different has also abolished and also abolished in point (B). They abolished “Feudalism” in point (B) and in point (A), they abolished something. So point (A) will be the second sentence because of continuation. In point (A), they are telling two-three other points – “The particular Assembly did, they have abolished some 2-3 points or they have done something related to the rights.” So point (A) will be the second sentence.
Let’s find the third sentence –
The third sentence will be point (D) – Because of other proposals followed with the same success, so there are legal something proposals related to punishment and public office etc. So there are six-seven other things which they have dome the particular assembly. So this will be the third paragraph.
Fourth Sentence – Point (C) will be our last paragraph because in this they have said the main institutional pillars have vanished overnight. So in this, the timeline also says “In November 1789”.
Answer – B – A – D – C
