  3. When you live life on your own terms, you will be a more fulfilled and happy person.

Options:

A. CABD

B. ADBC

C. BACD

D. DBAC

Solution:

The paragraph essentially highlights what it means to live life on one’s own terms.

The sentence that contains the subject and carries the central theme is A; therefore, it is the obvious choice for the first sentence.

Sentence D follows next as it defines the theme of the paragraph. Hence, D follows A.

Connecting Words: life on your own terms (A and D)

The next to follow is sentence B, which further explains the meaning of living life on one’s own terms. Hence, B follows D, leaving C as the concluding sentence.

Connecting Words: Life on your own terms (D) and it (B).

Hence, (B) is the correct answer.
