To easily solve the Ordering of Sentences or Jumbled up Sentences in few seconds then you need to follow and learn some basic shortcuts and tricks.

Theme: First, find out the theme. If we understand what is being talked about, making an order out of it will be quite easy

Initiating Sentence: The initiating sentence is the one that initiates the theme within the paragraph. Place yourself in the writer’s shoes- if you were explaining the paragraph, how would you begin?

Links: Links give us an idea as to what should be the following or the preceding sentence, taking into account the position of one particular sentence. Any writer links up sentences so that the thoughts flow smoothly. The language should not be jerky and the paragraph should reflect the flow of linking words. Links are found in various forms e.g. key words, grammatical links, contextual links, and concepts.

Strategy

There are several strategies to do this kind of question:

1) Try to locate the introductory sentence
While going through the labelled sentences, try to look for one that makes a fresh beginning. It should not be a sentence that is extending previous ideas.

2. Check for conclusive last sentences
The last sentence in the paragraph is one that summarises and has links to previous sentences.

3. Look for logical sequences among sentence pairs.
Very often a pair of sentences can be chronologically arranged because of clues in one of the sentences. Standard clues include reference to a person or thing. The first time such a reference is made, a noun form is used. The second reference will be a pronoun or a preposition. For example,

A. Its origins lie in Konark, where a huge chariot of Lord Jagannath is made every year to be taken out in a procession.

B. The juggernaut, though it seems very German in origin, is actually quite Asian.

The “Its” in sentence A refers clearly to juggernaut. So we can infer that sentence B precedes sentence A. Only using this information of the “its”, we do not know if B comes immediately before A or whether one or two sentences separate A and B. But by looking closely, we also see a common word - “origin”, which hints at the fact that the relationships is of immediate precedence.

4. Anticipate the order of the sentences
Knowing that going through each choice is cumbersome, we must work towards generating some kind of order in mind which will help save us precious time.

5. Confirm the closest option
In case that there is no exact match, our judgement about a close option being correct, will depend on the other options. If there is a match on the introductory and the concluding sentences then it is worth ticking that option. If there is more than one such match, then a closer examination of the sentences is required.

6. Plug in the various options.
If everything else has failed, this is the last tactic. But this tactic needs to be used judiciously, especially where there is negative marking.
