The central theme of the paragraph is Helen Keller and her teacher.

Here, chronological sequence can be seen. D should be the opening sentence followed by A, as Helen was deaf and blind before she was two years old.

Miss Sullivan arrived when Helen was seven, thus, A should be the next sentence.

Miss Sullivan began working with Helen, so E should be the next sentence.

B logically follows E, as Helen began to communicate verbally due to efforts of Miss Sullivan.

The last sentence should be C.

The correct sequence should be “DAEBC”
