as they in identifying the answer.

Question 2 Explanation: 
ANSWER: D On the face of it, option 3 looks like the correct answer,
but in fact, option D is the correct answer.
The first this is that the mandatory pair in the question is EC and the seconding logic is that sentence A is simply an analogy to explain the phenomenal mentioned in sentence D.
Question 3
A. Whilst it is idle to protest against the world-wide and evil signification of his name, it may be pointed out that the harsh construction of his doctrine which this sinister reputation implies was unknown to his own day, and that the researches of recent times have enabled us to interpret him more reasonably. B. Machiavelli was undoubtedly a man of great observation, acuteness, and industry; noting with appreciative eye whatever passed before him, and with his supreme literary gift turning it to account in his enforced retirement from affairs. C. No one can say where the bones of Machiavelli rest, but modern Florence has decreed him a stately cenotaph in Santa Croce, by the side of her most famous sons; recognizing that, whatever other nations may have found in his works, Italy found in them the idea of her unity and the germs of her renaissance among the nations of Europe. D. It is due to these inquiries that the shape of an "unholy necromancer," which so long haunted men's vision, has begun to fade. E. He does not present himself, nor is he depicted by his contemporaries, as a type of that rare combination, the successful statesman and author, for he appears to have been only moderately prosperous in his several embassies and political employments.

Question 3 Explanation: 
The first thing you need to decide in this case is the opening sentence. Out of C and A, it can be clearly seen that statement C introduces the subject of the paragraph. Out of statement B and E, we can see that statement B precedes statement E. This helps us identify option D as the correct answer.
Question 4
A. Branded disposable diapers are available at many supermarkets and drug stores.
B. If one supermarket sets a higher price for a diaper, customers may buy that brand elsewhere.
C. By contrast, the demand for private-label products may be less-price sensitive since it is available only at a corresponding supermarket chain.
D. So the demand for branded diapers at any particular store may be quite price sensitive.
E. For instance, only SavOn Drugs stores sell SavOn Drugs diapers.
F. Then stores should set a higher incremental margin percentage for private label diapers.

Question 4 Explanation: 
In para-jumble questions,
we essentially need to form links among different statements.
In this question, we can that that the reason why the demand for branded diapers may be price-sensitive is given in A.
This fact is supported further by the pair DB.
C introduces a contrast in the sentence, further supported by the example in E.
F can be linked with the mention of private-labels made in it. This leads us to the correct answer in the given case.
Question 5
A. I had six thousand acres of land, and had thus got much spare land besides the coffee plantation. Part of the farm was native forest, and about one thousand acres were squatters’ land, what [the Kikuyu] called their shambas.
B. The squatters’ land was more intensely alive than the rest of the farm, and was changing with the seasons the year round. The maize grew up higher than your head as you walked on the narrow hard-trampled footpaths in between the tall green rustling regiments.
C. The squatters are Natives, who with their families hold a few acres on a white man’s farm, and in return have to work for him a certain number of days in the year. My squatters, I think, saw the relationship in a different light, for many of them were born on the farm, and their fathers before them, and they very likely regarded me as a sort of superior squatter on their estates.
D. the Kikuyu also grew the sweet potatoes that have a vine like leaf and spread over the ground like a dense entangled mat, and many varieties of big yellow and green speckled pumpkins.
E. The beans ripened in the fields, were gathered and thrashed by the women, and the maize stalks and coffee pods were collected and burned, so that in certain seasons thin blue columns of smoke rose here and there all over the farm.

Question 5 Explanation: 
As we know, para-jumble questions are all about making the right links. In this question, sentence A talk about squatters’ land and sentence C describes who the squatters were. Sentence B takes sentence C forward as it gives the description of squatters’ land. Sentence E carries on the same idea of what happens in the squatters’ land and sentence D gives additional information about what is grown in these fields which is indicated by the word ‘also’.
