  4. Ram

Options:

  1. CDBA
  2. DBAC

Solution:  We first need to find the subject of the sentence. That would be the first part. Here, Ram is the subject. There might be some confusion regarding which one would be the first sentence – ‘Ram’ or  ‘Hari’s son,’. The trick is simple. Since part C has a comma after it, it would be the first sentence. If you encounter any such parts in the question, then that would be at the beginning of the sentence. So, here C is the first part and naturally, D is the second part.

The remaining parts are easy to arrange. Since a sentence, cannot end with ‘is a’, therefore it would be the third part and ‘Good boy’ would be the fourth and last part.

So, the current sequence is CDBA

Answer: Option (a)
