a. abcd
b. abdc
c. acbd
d. bcda

ANSWER: acbd
“The managing director” is the subject of the sentence not interested in listening is the verb or action part and why profits were lessening forms part of the predicate or latter half of the sentence. The entire sentence therefore reads meaningfully if (c) is chosen.
