The central idea of this paragraph is introduced in sentence D. So, the first sentence should be D.

We can now eliminate option 2 and 4.

Option 1 and 3 both state D followed by B, F in sequence.

The next sentence should be E as it describes some of the hazards which were previously mentioned in sentence F.

The last sentence should be C, the keyword here is ‘further’ which implies this event took place after all the others i.e. at a later stage.

Thus, C should be the last sentence.

The correct sentence should be “DBFEAC”
