    A. These earlier favorites were not courted by the great because they could write, but because they could talk, and adorn courts, like Madame de Sévigné.
    B. It was two hundred years after woman began to reign in the great cities of Europe as queen of society, before she astonished the world by brilliant literary successes.

Some of the most famous women who adorned society recorded their observations and experiences for the benefit of posterity; but these productions were generally in the form of memoirs and letters, which neither added to nor detracted from the splendid position they occupied because of their high birth, wit, and social fascinations.
    F. But in the eighteenth century a class of women arose and gained great celebrity on account of their writings, like Hannah More, Miss Burney, Mrs. Macaulay, Madame Dacier, Madame de la Fayette,–women who proved that they could do something more than merely write letters, for which women ever have been distinguished from the time of Héloïse.

    Which of the following is the ‘FIRST’ sentence of the paragraph?

    Ans: 1
    Sentence A starts with ‘these earlier favorites’. Hence, it is talking about something which has already been introduced. C also refers to ‘all these women’. Hence, it must also be talking about something which has already been introduced. D mentions ‘such a woman’. Hence, it is also talking about someone who has already been introduced. F begins with but and hence it is unlikely to be the opening sentence of the paragraph. Among B and E, B is a better opening sentence as it sets the context. B talks about how women gained literary success 200 years after women were ruling over the major European cities. E mentions how these women were mostly from prominent families. A continues on the same point and hence should follow E. F mentions how the things changed in the eighteenth century when women started getting famous not because of the background but because of their writings. Hence, F provides a smooth transition from the point which is mentioned in E and A. C also continues to talk about this new generation of women writers. D is the concluding sentence for the paragraph. Hence, the correct order of the sentences will be BEAFCD.
