↓答案解析↓

正确答案:EADBC

 A. They had become rapidly dominated by powerful enterprises, who were unable to act in their own interests, against the interests of both workers and consumers.

【A选项出现了They,具体指代的是谁暂不清楚,我们继续看其他选项。同时浏览一下后面的内容,关键点在于against the interests of both workers and consumers, 大致含义是于工人和消费者的利益是冲突的。我们接下来需要去寻找与之相关的内容。】

 B. Mill was able to see an expanded role for the State in such legislation to protect us against powerful interests.

【B选项中的出现的such legislation暂时还未发现可以对应的内容,接下来可以去寻找相关legislation的内容,B选项就应该是跟在出现相关内容之后的段落。】

 C. He was able to argue that the State was the only organ that was genuinely capable of responding to social needs and social interests, unlike markets.

【这里的He很明显是指代某个具体出现的人,只有B选项中出现了人名Mill,所以C肯定是跟在B之后的。】

 D. There had already been some legislation to prevent such abuses, such as various Factory Acts to prevent the exploitation of child workers, or Acts designed to prevent manufacturers from adulterating bread.

【在这里出现了some legislation,和B选项中的such legislation对应,可以看出B是跟在D之后的。同时such abuses指代的是A选项中的against the interests of both workers and consumers,后面的child workers等内容也可以看出such abuses是与workers, consumers利益相关的,所以D是接在A之后的。这样我们就确定了ADBC的顺序。】

 E. Markets may be good at encouraging innovation, and following trends, but there were no good at ensuring social inequality.

【扫一遍E选项可以发现这句话独立出现也没有问题,应该是主题段落,阐明了这段文字的主旨:市场经济不利于保证社会公平性。同时这里的Markets即是A选项里They指代的对象。所以A应该是接在E之后的。】
