C is the second sentence since it gives a context for such a decision - "Indian government's announcement earlier this month that it plans to borrow about 700 billion rupees by issuing overseas sovereign bonds".

D is the third sentence since it gives more information regarding the countries India is asking for aid from in the present scenario.

E is the fourth sentence since it provides an insider angle to the whole subject along with the fact that the country can ask up to 1 trillion Indian rupees as loan.

B is the last sentence because it talks about the MSME industry (which was the subject of discussion in the earlier sentences) taking things into their own hands.

2.The first part/sentence is A since it introduces the subject of the sentence - a paper published by Mr. Subramanian which talks about India's potential rate of growth.

The second part is D since it connects to the first part through the economic term 'potential rate of growth'.

The third part is B since it connects the verb 'has' with Arvind Subramanian.

The fourth part is C since it completes the argument that India's GDP growth had been overestimated by 2.5% and states the growth rate to be 4.5%.

3.B is the first sentence since it introduces the subject of the para - the original paper and its follow up.

D connects to the first sentence as it describes the follow-up paper.

C is the concluding part since it gives more info regarding what today's 4.5% represents.

A is the third sentence since it talks about the impact of the proposal.

D is the fourth sentence since it concludes the idea.
