Rearrange the parts of the sentence in correct order.
Every single individual without
P. fail will have to contribute,
Q. world a better place.
R. if we are to make this
Correct Answer : c ) PRQExplanation :
The correct sequence is PRQ and the sentence formed after rearranging is “Every single individual without fail will have to contribute, if we are to make this world a better place.”
The sentence essentially means that if we are to improve the state of the word, every single person without exception will have to do their bit.
The referenced phrase, ‘Every single individual without’ ending the with the word, ‘without’ meaning, ‘in the absence of something/ someone’. The next phrase to follow, should substitute ‘something/ someone’ with an appropriate word/ context.
The answer to the above is found in phrase P, which begins with the word ‘fail’. ‘without’ when combined with ‘fail’, means, ‘with no exception; always’, which accords with the essence of the sentence. Hence, P is the first phrase to follow the referenced phrase.
Even though the combined phrase formed is complete, we see that phrase P ends with a comma, meaning more to follow.
Analysing the remaining two options: Q and R, we see that the phrase R begins with the conjunction, ‘if’ which acts as a connector between the phrases and when combined with P forms a grammatically correct phrase, leaving Q as the concluding phrase.
Hence, (C) is the correct answer.
