The opening idea of this paragraph is given by sentence C.

So, C should be the first sentence.

Sentence E gives us the general opinion about these type of people, so it should come after C.

Sentence A tells us about the result or the actions such people take.

A is logically followed by D, as D provides example of the situation mentioned in the previous sentences.

F should follow sentence D as F tells us how the children feel when restrictions are placed on them.

The pronoun ‘they’ here is used for children, so it obviously will come after the noun ‘children’ used in the sentence D.

The correct sequence should be “CEADFB”
