don't just crack CLAT, come hack CLAT with us.

If you are taking CLAT 2011, don't ignore parajumbles

These are based on a past years NLS paper - and you can expect some parajumbles of this level of complexity this time around.

Direction: The five paragraphs given below have all had their constituent sentences jumbled. Read each jumbled passage carefully and then pick the option in which the best sequence is shown and shade the appropriate answer in the space provided for it on the separate printed answer sheet.


Marks: Each question carries 1 (One) mark. (Total 5 marks)

26. UNIT I
(i) Neanderthals must have been a cold-adapted people – but only within limits.
(ii) The first penetration of Siberia and the Arctic was left to later, fully modern humans.
(iii) During the time the Neanderthals flourished, Europe and Asia were in the grip of the last Ice Age.
(iv) They got no further than southern Britain, northern Germany, Kiev, and the Caspian Sea.

The best sequence is :
(a) ii, i, iii, iv (b) iv, iii, i, ii
(c) iv, iii, ii, i (d) iii, i, iv, ii

27. UNIT II
(i) Alternatively, Neanderthals may have bitten hides with their teeth to make leather, or bitten wood to make wooden tools.
(ii) A dentist examining a Neanderthal's teeth would have been in for a shock.
(iii) As one possibility, they may have routinely used their teeth as a vice to grip objects.
(iv) In adult Neanderthals, the incisors were worn down on the outer-facing surface, in a way found in no modern people.
(v) Evidently, this peculiar wear-pattern somehow resulted from a use of their teeth as tools, but what was that function ?

The best sequence is :

(a) ii, i, iii, v, iv (b) ii, iv, v, iii, i
(c) ii, iii, iv, v, i (d) ii, v, iii, i, iv

28. UNIT III
(i) A Neanderthal woman's birth canal may have been wider than that of a modern woman's.
(ii) This would have permitted her baby to grow inside her to a bigger size before birth.
(iii) If so, a Neanderthal pregnancy may have lasted a year, instead of our nine months.
(iv) One other anatomical difference is intriguing, though its reality as well as its interpretation are quite uncertain.

The best sequence is :
(a) ii, i, iii, iv (b) iv, iii, i, ii
(c) ii, iii, iv, i (d) iv, i, ii, iii


29. UNIT IV
(i) No such cultural variation is apparent for Neanderthals, whose tools look much the same whether they come from France or Russia.
(ii) Today we take cultural differences among people inhabiting different areas for granted.
(iii) If you were shown chopsticks, a Guinness beer bottle and a blowgun and asked to associate one object each with China Borneo and Ireland, you would have no trouble giving the right answers.
(iv) Every human population alive today has its characteristic house-style, implements, and art.

The best sequence is :
(a) ii, iv, iii, i (b) ii, iv, i, iii
(c) ii, i, iii, iv (d) ii, iii, i, iv

30. UNIT V
(i) First, virtually all well-preserved Neanderthal caves have small areas of ash and charcoal, indicating that they regularly used fire.
(ii) Finally, they regularly took care of their sick and their aged.
(iii) There are three aspects in which we can relate to Neanderthals as humans.
(iv) Neanderthals may also have been the first people who regularly buried their dead.

The best sequence is :
(a) iv, iii, i, ii (b) iii, i, iv, ii
(c) iii, i, ii, iv (d) iv, iii, ii, i
