This quiz is a short paragraph in a disordered sequence. After reading these four sentences, we can get a general idea that the conversation is about a scenario in which a person wants to order a meal in a restaurant. It’s a “Q & A” dialogue.
First, we can be sure that sentence three should be put before sentence two, as they are a greeting and a question, then a corresponding answer. Then, we can try to locate the subject of this paragraph about ordering a meal. Of all the sentences, only sentence four and sentence one have a clear subject, “For here or to go?” After comparing these two sentences, we know that we should put sentence one as the second in the sequence, for it is a declarative sentence. Therefore, sentence one should be placed after sentence four.
Finally, we can put the right order correctly at 3-2-4-1.
