Which of the following should be the Fifth sentence after rearrangement?
The correct option is E F
E is an opening statement as it introduces the topic. A complements E and hence EA is a link. 'They' in B refers to people. The reference to these people can be found in A,D or F. Upon comparing, DB makes more sense and hence is a link. 'They' in D refers to the people mentioned in A. So, EADB is a link. F should follow B as it talks more about friends and relatives.
Hence, the correct order of sentences is EADBFC.
