QUESTION-34: Five sentences related to a topic are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a meaningful and coherent short paragraph. Identify the odd one out.

1. The water that made up ancient lakes and perhaps an ocean was lost.
2. Particles from the Sun collided with molecules in the atmosphere, knocking them into space or giving them an electric charge that caused them to be swept away by the solar wind.
3. Most of the planet’s remaining water is now frozen or buried, but clues over the past decade suggested that some liquid water, a presumed necessity for life, might survive in underground aquifers.
4. Data from NASA’s MAVEN orbiter show that solar storms stripped away most of Mars’s once-thick atmosphere.
5. A recent study reveals how Mars lost much of its early water, while another indicates that some liquid water remains.

Answer and Explanation

Answer: (1)

In this set of statements, statements 5 and 4 form the introduction for the given set. Statement 2 then explains what happened when the solar storm took place and statement 3 explains how the water got stored. Thus, statements 5-4-2-3 build a coherent narrative in this case. Statement 1, on the other hand, talks about the water being lost. This is completely different to what is implied in the given context (with respect to the water being stored). Thus, this is an easy odd one out to spot.
