The idea about the First World War is introduced here in 2 sentences, B and E.

But we can see that, sentence B uses ‘thus’ which states that it cannot be the opening sentence, it may be the ending sentence of this paragraph.

So, the first sentence should be E. E should be followed by C as E mentions experiments with weapons and C states that many new weapons were used.

The next sentence should be A, as it speaks about aftermath of war and lessons learned. The next sentences should be D, as it continues the discussion about aftermath of the war.

The last sentence should be B.

The correct sequence should be “ECADB”
