Read all the text boxes quickly before you start re-ordering them:
Read the text boxes in order to understand the main idea of each one. You can do this by noting the keywords.
Next, use the keywords to form an overall idea of what the original text is about. This will help you find the logical order for the ideas in the text boxes:
Find the topic sentence first:
Every well-written paragraph has a topic sentence. It is usually a clear statement about the topic, and all the other sentences are related in some way to this sentence.
The topic sentence can stand alone; it does not begin with a linker or a pronoun that refers back to something or someone (e.g., ‘he’ or ‘this’), nor does it does refer back to information or actions previously mentioned through the use of things like passive verb tenses (‘No link was found’):
When you start attempting this question your first goal should be to identify the leading paragraph. This is often easy to do as the leading paragraph has some unique characteristics.
Look for the independent sentence, and Look for noun-pronoun relationships.
Look for connecting words. Words, for example, however, therefore, because, indicate that the sentence preceding these words. Sentences starting with one of these words are infrequently the first sentences.
Once you have found the leading paragraph, you should look for the next paragraph. There are two things to consider. First, the second paragraph should add on to what the first paragraph introduced. Second, the paragraph should have a link with something in the previous paragraph.
Once you have arranged all paragraphs in the right order, make sure you read them again. Sometimes in subsequent reading, you will feel that a paragraph can be moved in another place. Do it and see how it impacts the meaning of the whole text.
At times you will be confused between different paragraphs. In that case, you should put each paragraph in position one by one and see how it affects the order of other paragraphs and the meaning of the text.
In any reading that you do, begin seeing how sections and paragraphs are connected to one another. This expertise is at the center of the reorder passage question type. Begin seeing how sections change starting with one then onto the next.
Remember if nothing works focus on the paring of the sentences. And you will get your marks based on pairs.
