    Question (1-6): Rearrange the following six sentences A, B, C, D, E and F to form a meaningful paragraph and answer the questions that follow.

    A. This is because banks have to do provisioning for each and every asset that has gone bad as there is very little or no chance of getting any interest or principal from these loans.

    C. These assets are the biggest headache of the banking sector since the profits of the banks get affected because of increasing number of NPAs in the balance sheet of the bank.

    D. Indian government is trying its best to bring to books the defaulters of bank loans in India since the problem of NPA in the country is increasing not only in public sector banks but also in private sector banks.

    E. That is why the RBI has embarked on a mission to cleanse the balance sheets of these banks and punish the willful defaulters properly so that in future, it becomes impossible for anybody to do the same after taking loans from banks.
