A particularly interesting example of inference – Video Solution

Q. Five sentences related to a topic are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a meaningful and coherent short paragraph. Identify the odd one out. Choose its number as your answer and key it in.

  1. A particularly interesting example of inference occurs in many single panel comics.
  2. It’s the creator’s participation and imagination that makes the single-panel comic so engaging and so rewarding.
  3. Often, the humor requires you to imagine what happened in the instant immediately before or immediately after the panel you’re being shown.
  4. To get the joke, you actually have to figure out what some of these missing panels must be.
  5. It is as though the cartoonist devised a series of panels to tell the story and has chosen to show you only one – and typically not even the funniest.
Answer: 2

Solution: Sentences 1, 3, 4 and 5 are about humour and humorous inferences that are present in single panel comics. Sentence 2, on the other hand, is about the reason single-panel comics are so rewarding. Sentence 2 does not talk about the humorous aspect of single panel comics at all but is about the creator’s imagination while making single panel comics. Therefore, it is the odd sentence out of the paragraph.
Hence, the correct answer is sentence 2.
