Question 3

A is the first statement of this parajumble, the others need to be arranged after A. Any answers for the best logical sequence possible?

A) Personal experience of mothering and motherhood are largely framed in relation to two discernible or “official” discourses; the “medical discourse and natural childbirth discourse”. Both of these tend to focus on the “optimistic stories” of birth and mothering and underpin stereotypes of the “godmother”.  
B) At the same time, the need for medical expert guidance is also a feature for contemporary reproduction and motherhood.  But constructions of good mothering have not always been so conceived and in different contexts may exist in parallel to other equally dominant discourses.  
C) Similarly, historical work has shown how what are now taken for granted aspects of reproduction and mothering practices result from contemporary “pseudoscientific directives” and “managed constructs”. These changes have led to a reframing of modern discourses that pattern pregnancy and motherhood leading to an acceptance of the need for greater expert management.  
D) The contrasting, overlapping and ambiguous strands with in these frameworks focus to varying degrees on a woman’s biological tie to her child and predisposition to instinctively know and be able to care for her child.  
E) In addition, a third, “unofficial popular discourse” comprising “old wives” tales and based on maternal experiences of childbirth has also been noted. These discourses have also been acknowledged in work exploring the experiences of those who apparently do not “conform” to conventional stereotypes of the “good mother”? 

Correct Answer: EDBC

Question 4

S1 and S6 are the starting and the ending statements respectively. How should the rest of the arrangement be?

Q: I prefer reading his magazines editorials.
R: however I am not fond of his books.
S: All his books have been completely sold out


Answer: D

Question 5

What sequence of statements seems to be the best in this question?

1) Let us take a look at the manner in which the traditional bank adds value to the customer. 
2) The ability to retain deposits, in itself, is not enough to ensure long-term survival and growth.
3) The ability to deploy invested funds into productive economic activity at a higher rate of return, hence contributing to the prosperity of both the economy and the institution, is the other loop in the banking cycle. 
4) Further, as only a small portion of the actual deposit base is retained with the bank in a liquid form, the very survival of the bank lies in building enough trust with its clientele so as to prevent the occurrence of a sizeable chunk of simultaneous customer withdrawal (a run on the bank). 
5) The bank’s basic job is risk absorption- it takes money, which has a lot of attached risk, and provides the customer an assured rate of return.
