### HideShow timer Statistics

a) The Greeks understood that comedy (the gods’ view of life) is superior to tragedy (the merely human).
b) But since the Middle Ages, western culture has overvalued the tragic and undervalued the comic.
c) This is why fiction today is so full of anxiety and suffering.
d) It’s time writers got back to the serious business of making us laugh

a) abcd b) acbd c) cabd d) dabc

‘ab’ is concomitant as ‘but’ of ‘b’ contrasts the western
culture’s overvaluation of ‘the tragic’ and undervaluation
of ‘the comic’ with the Greek’s in ‘a’. The ‘This is why’ of ‘c’
is an extension of ‘b’; so ‘abc’ is concomitant. ‘d’ is provided
as a solution and so should end the paragraph.

Option d) dabc would make sense and makes it a meaningful paragraph.
