  • When solving jumbled sentences or "Sequence of Words" type questions, first determine the "Subject" and the "Predicate".
    SUBJECT - The part which names the person or thing we are speaking about.
    PREDICATE - The part that tells something about the subject.
  • A central Theme around which the passage is framed. Identify the central theme, which is usually the first sentence.
  • A logical sequence is present which usually describes the central theme.
  • If there are pronouns like (it, this, that etc) in the sentence , then it simply means that they have already discussed about the subject. So in maximum cases it won't be the first sentence (I and You are exceptions for this rule).
  • Sentences that begin with 'And', 'But' etc usually follow the central theme with an explanation to the same or give additional information.
  • Sentences that have full names mentioned are either the starting or come in the first few sentences of the paragraphs. Similarly, the sentences that have 'they', 'him' or 'her' or the short names would only come after the proper introduction of the person.
  • In maximum cases Last sentence ends with some conclusion / statement
  • Its always a good idea to read the answer options to figure out the most correct sentence, than to try solving the jumbled sentence yourself.
