In the question given below, each sentence is labelled with a letter. From the given choices, choose the most logical order of sentence that constructs a coherent paragraph.
- In the following years, more layers of snow add up to the existing mass.
- Consequently, the weight of the snow compresses and turns into solid ice.
- Most glaciers are found near the Poles.
- They begin to form when snow remains in the same area all year round.
The theme of the paragraph is the formation of glaciers. Thus, sentence C should start the paragraph. In sentence D, “they” refers to “most glaciers.” Naturally, sentence D should follow. Then comes sentence A as “all year round” and “in the following years” are connected. At the end comes sentence B. “Solid ice” refers to glaciers.
Therefore, CDAB is the correct option.
