PTE Reorder Paragraphs Practice Sample With Full Answer Explanation –

Let’s just read it and try to find an independent sentence. So first is “But in Scotland”, started this with BUT, so this can’t be the independent sentence. This is dependent on something else. Leave the sentence “But in Scotland”.

Next is “When this bank was founded”, so leave this as well, they have talked about “this” bank. Means in the previous paragraph must be a name of the bank or there must be a detail related to the bank. Then only this paragraph can follow “when this bank”. So leave this as well.

To face growth of trade it was deemed necessary to remedy this lack of an adequate currency. – So focus on “this lack of adequate currency” means “this lack”, there must be some explanation of lack of an adequate currency in the previous paragraph. So this is not an independent sentence.

The first Scottish bank to do this was the Bank of Scotland. – “The first Scotish bank to do this”, again “to do this” there is some particular type of work, or there is something which was done previously. That’s why they have said that “The first Scottish bank to do this” some particular work, so this can’t be the independent sentence as well.

In most countries, it is only the government, through their central banks, who are permitted to issue currency. – So this is an independent sentence. If you read it again, you may notice it can survive alone without the help of these sentences. So this is our first sentence (E).

Let’s find the second sentence –

In point (E), “It is only” and “only” is always followed by “but”. So point (A) will be our second sentence. If you read it again, you will find the continuation between point (E) and (A). So technically this “only” is followed by “but”, so these are connectors and this is how these two lines are connected.

Let’s find the third sentence –

{In point (B), “When this bank”}, {in point (A), they told in Scotland three banks, they didn’t say any particular bank} and in point (B), they are saying “this bank”, so this can’t be the third sentence.

In point (C), “this lack of an adequate currency”, so “this lack”, they haven’t mentioned and lack in point (A).

So these two sentences (B) and (C) can not be the third sentence.

Point (D) – The first Scottish bank to do this, by “this”, they mean “issue bank notes”. Now we got a name of the bank “Bank of Scotland”. So this will be our third sentence.

Let’s find the fourth sentence –

So next sentence will be the point (B) – When this bank was founded in 1695, this bank – “The Bank of Scotland”. So this will be our fourth sentence.

Fifth sentence – Point (C) this lack of an adequate currency, Point (B) – they have mentioned that there was a “shortage” and in point (C), they have told “this lack of an adequate currency”. This will be our last sentence.

Advice – So again you can revise it with the same trend.

Most countries only, but is connected to the only. Next – The first Scotish Bank “to do this”, this they mean “Issue Banknote”. Next is when this bank – “Bank of Scotland. After that “this lack” will be our last sentence.

Answer – E – A – D -B – C
