How to be the best at paragraph forming

How to be the best at paragraph forming | Tips for paragraph forming | paragraph forming

CAT 2017 is being conducted on 26th November 2017 and focused aspirants like you are preparing for the exam. But you need to maintain enthusiasm to achieve mission CAT. 

Paragraph forming?

In the Verbal Ability and Reasoning section of the Common Admission Test (CAT), there are a few questions on the rearrangement of sentences of a paragraph. In each question, there are between four and six sentences, in jumbled form.
 
You are required to identify the opening sentence, the conclusion and then arrange the remaining sentences in such a manner that the entire paragraph reads in a coherent manner. 
 
Before you can form paragraphs, it is important to understand the gist of the paragraph. This requires one to read all the sentences carefully. Apart from practicing past years’ papers, one should study sentence construction rules in greater depth. Identifying the opening and concluding sentences are easy.

Practise with Top 10 Reading Comprehension Passages

The opening sentence is usually the sentence that introduces an idea or a concept. The last sentence will conclude what has been covered in the paragraph. 
 
Once the opening sentence has been identified, you should zero in on the next sentence that acts as a continuation of the idea being discussed in the paragraph. To ace this section, it is important to find links between two sentences.
 
It is important to read extensively to ace this section. By reading online newspapers such as the BBC and CNN, you will be able to understand how sentences are linked to one another. 

Plus, you should make it a point to read all the options in the question to understand the gist of the paragraph. Unless you are clear about what is being conveyed in the paragraph, you will find it difficult to form a coherent paragraph. 
 
You should also identify pairs of sentences that go together. For example, if one of the sentences begins with ‘on one hand,’ it should be accompanied by another sentence that begins with ‘on the other hand.’ Also, look for pronouns and respective nouns that sentences refer to. 
 
For example, if one of the sentences has the word, ‘they’ in it, the preceding sentence should have a noun which shines light on what ‘they’ refers to.
 
These are some of the tips that will surely help you ace the paragraph forming section of the CAT.
