ACBD. The paragraph is about the programmer & ‘A’ is the best opening line. ‘C’ follows ‘A’ as it talks about holiday package as mentioned in sentence ‘A’. ‘B’ “D’ is a sequence (‘these talks’ in ‘D’ is equal to issues discussed in ‘B’) 

2. Re-order / Rearrange the sentence in such a way that make sense.

[A]. Commercially reared chicken can be unusually aggressive and are often kept in darkened sheds to prevent them pecking at each other.
[B]. The birds spent far more of their time up to a third-pecking at the inanimate objects in the pens, in contrast to birds in other pens which spent a lot of time attacking others. Bales could diminish aggressiveness and reduce injuries; they might even improve productivity since a happy chicken is a productive chicken.
[C]. In low light conditions, they behave less belligerently but are more prone to ophthalmic disorders and respiratory problems.
[D]. In an experiment, aggressive head-pecking was all but eliminated among birds in the enriched environment.
[E]. Altering the birds’ environment, by adding bales of wood shavings to their pens, can work wonders.

ACEDB. The paragraph is talking about chicken and sentence ‘A’ introduces the paragraph. ‘C’ follows ‘A’ as low light conditions are same as darkened conditions. Sentence ‘B’, ‘D’ & ‘E’ all talks about the experiment. Out of which ‘E’ starts the experiment, ‘D’ follows ‘E’ & ‘B’ sums it up.
