Para Jumble (59)

Directions (1-5): Rearrange the following sentences (A), (B), (C), (D), (E) to make a meaningful paragraph and then answer the questions which follow:

 

A. To avoid this, the QWERTY layout put the keys most likely to be hit in rapid succession on

opposite sides. This made the keyboard slow the story goes, but that was the idea.

B. A different layout, which had been patented by August Dvorak in 1936, was shown to be much

faster.

C. The QWERTY design (patented by Christopher Sholes in 1868 and sold to Remington in 1873)

aimed to solve a mechanical problem of early typewriters.

D. Yet the Dvorak layout has never been widely adopted, even though (with electric typewriters

and then PCs) the anti-jamming rational for QWERTY has been defunct for years.

E. When certain combinations of keys were struck quickly, the type bars often jammed.
