Explanation:(E, G, D, A, C, F, H, B)
- As we all know that first of all we will go through all of these sentences and when we read all these sentences we see that there are two sentences that can be our first sentence and these sentences are sentence (A and E) but in sentence A we have the full form of RBI so we can’t put sentence E before sentence A so sentence E will be our first sentence.
- Now we need to find our second sentence but firstly we try to find those sentences which can be a pair easily. When we read sentence Awe see that in the end of this sentence the RBI governor wants to say something and when we see the sentence C it is in inverted comaas it means in passive voice so it will definitely be a pair (A-C). when we read sentence F and H we understand that sentence those companies which have taken the biggest loans from govt. sector banks are mostly from steelmakers and infrastructure companies and in H it has given that steel companies were widely known and in sentence B it has also given that it not a surprising thing if the steel companies took the huge part of that loan so it should be a pair in this sequence (F, H and B).
- Now we have remaining only two sentences that can be our second sentence (D and G) in sentence D the gross total of NPAs has given and in sentence G those 12 borrower who took the loan each 5000 cr. Rs. So it should also be a pair (G and D). Now we have get our starting three sentences (E, G and D) and after that we can easily understand that our fourth sentence will be sentence A and then we can put our pairs in this sequence (C, F, H, B).
