Congress is concerned that domestic limits on carbon emissions would put American companies at a competitive disadvantage with rivals in countries with no such caps. But that is not the only problem. In the absence of a system of import duties related to carbon, industries with high emissions might relocate to nonsignatory countries to save money.

We have to recognise that identity cards have a chequered past. They can be and are used for important but innocuous purposes like determining whether a person should be behind the wheels of a car. They have also however been used for dastardly ends. Identity cards were what enabled Nazi Germany to single out the Jews. Information that empowers an individual does also empower a state.

Arrange sentences labeled A, B, C, D, E to form a coherent paragraph.

A. Our generation is probably no different from any other in resisting cultural change while failing to understand the process.

B.      In this we may simply be being impatient: typically it has taken about three generations for substantial numbers of migrants from any arriving group to become integral parts of the society they have joined.

C.      Why then are we witness to so much controversy over migration today – over the way in which migrants construct their sense of themselves from past, present and future?

D.      But we imagine a greater degree of 'strangeness’ and a more stubborn refusal to ‘integrate’ on the part of modern migrants than we suppose to have been the case in the past.

E.      In recorded history periods of human movement and of population stability have alternated; in modern times migration has been purposefully engineered in the search for skills and labour, but the cities and settled cultures of Eurasia have always been magnets for migrants.

Five sentences A, B, C, D and E are given which when arranged in a particular order form a coherent paragraph. Your answer is the correct order of arranging the sentences.

(A)     Gay couples are invisible.

(B)     It was as if a politician, a century ago, had announced his support for an amendment that would forever ban women from voting in any election on U.S. soil, and had done so in a speech carefully crafted to avoid mentioning women or even using a feminine pronoun.

(C)     In the course of his speech, as indeed in the course of his presidency, the word "gay" or "homosexual" did not pass his lips.

(D)     The message of his omission intended or otherwise, must surely be: Gay Americans are of no interest or concern to this president.

(E)     He had nothing to say about the people to whom he would deny the irreplaceable blessings of marriage, and nothing to say specifically to them.
