    Important Tips to Rearrange the Above Sentences:

    Hint 1: Try to find out thetopic addressedby the paragraph. This can be done by looking for the words that are repeated often in the given sentences
    ·        Here, the word repeated isconstruction and the topic addressed isconstruction of houses

    Hint 2: If a sentence starts with the words‘That’, ‘These’, ‘Thus’, ‘Those’ and‘But’, then those sentences will not come as the1stsentencein the paragraph

    Hint 3: If a sentence starts with the wordsHence,Finally orTherefore then that sentence comeslast in the arrangement
    ·        Now, sentence (A)can be the last sentence of the arrangement (it can be confirmed after analyzing the rest of the sentences)
    ·        So the sentences(A), (C) and(E) cannot be the 1st sentence of the arrangement
    ·        This leaves sentences(B) and(D), where any one of them can be the1st sentence

    Hint 4: In sentence(B), the pronounitis used. The word that denotes the ‘it’ will be in the previous sentence.
    ·        So,(B) cannot be the 1st sentence.
    ·        That leaves sentence(D) as the only option for1st sentence.
    ·        This can further be confirmed by the following point.

    Hint 5: If an article namely‘a’,‘an’ or‘the’ is present at the starting of a sentence. Then the chances of that sentence to be the 1st in the arrangement is more

    FIRST SENTENCE – (D) The census figures show that the population of our cities has increased immensely in the recent years.
    ·        Now considering the sentence(B), Construction is compared with the word referred by the pronounit.
    ·        After reading all the sentences it can be concluded thatitdenotes theincrease in population mentioned in(D)
    ·        So, (B) follows (D)

    Hence,SECOND SENTENCE – (B) Construction has not kept with it and the shortage of accommodation has been accentuated.
    ·        Now sentence(E) starts with the pronounThisfollowed by the word shortage.
    ·        Search for the word shortage in the other sentences.
    ·        It can be found in sentence (B), which implies that(E) follows (B)

    So,THIRD SENTENCE – (E) This shortage must be overcome in a reasonably short time.
    ·        By reading the remaining 2 sentences (A) and (C), we can see that sentence (A) provides a solution to the problem mentioned in (C)
    ·        So,(A) follows (C)
    ·        Already, according toHint 3, (A) is the tentative last sentence of the arrangement.

    Therefore,LAST or FIFTH SENTENCE – (A) Therefore large scale construction programme that can be affordable at reasonable cost has to be launched.

    Which leaves,FOURTH SENTENCE – (C) But high cost of materials and labour makes housing an unprofitable proposition.

    Answers:
    The final arrangement is as follows
    FIRST SENTENCE – (D)The census figures show that the population of our cities has increased immensely in the recent years.
    SECOND SENTENCE – (B)Construction has not kept with it and the shortage of accommodation has been accentuated.
    THIRD SENTENCE – (E)This shortage must be overcome in a reasonably short time.
    FOURTH SENTENCE – (C)But high cost of materials and labour makes housing an unprofitable proposition.
    LAST or FIFTH SENTENCE – (A)Therefore large scale construction programme that can be affordable at reasonable cost has to be launched.
