The sentence E gives a general comment on happiness and talks about what it means for a child. First sentence is E.

Next, we have sentence C because it deals with concept of happiness for a teenager.

The third sentence should be B because it now moves on to the view of adults.

Since ‘B’ ends with ‘puzzled face’ and F begins with the same, so F should follow B as fourth sentence.

Since sentence A talks about enjoyment and happiness and D gives relation between the two, so D should follow A as the last sentence of the paragraph.

The correct sequence is ‘ECBFAD.’
