Solution

The correct option is A

BDAEC


Solution:

 Statement  E  cannot start the paragraph because of the word 'the island', which indicates that it has already been mentioned in a previous statement.  Among  B  and  D  only statement  B appears to be the right choice because in statement  D  there is no explanation for Diego Garcia.  Hence  D  is a continuation of a previous statement.  Among B and D, choice D cannot be the answer because there is no  time agreements between statements C  and  A  and  E  and  D.  Hence  B  is the obvious choice.
