Solution 

Correct Sequence: E->A->C->B->D
Opening sentence is (E) which tells about NASA's Cassini Spacecraft and the images captured by it. Then comes the sentence (A) which explains the objective of the spacecraft. Sentences (C) and (B) follows (A) and gives more information regarding the image taken. Sentence (D) concludes the passage by giving information about the next objective of the spacecraft. The position of sentence (A) and (C) may create confusion for some readers. But if we place sentence (A) after (C), then the structure of the sentence will get distorted.

Solution

Correct Sequence: B->E->A->C->D
Opening sentence is (B) which tells about the possible effect of GST on Kannada film industry. Then comes the sentence (E) giving reason behind the sentence (B). Sentence (A) follows (E) which explains another possible consequence of the GST. Now comes the sentence (C) where topic of discussion changes from 'effects' to 'measures taken by government'(no decision has been taken by the government). Sentence (D), with same theme as (C) concludes the passage by giving a hope that government will take some action in near future.
