But according to the rule generalized statement comes first here I am saying 1 after 4 so that it will be like generalized statement first and then its elaboration.

Yes, the general statement should come first and that is why I believe 1 should come after 4 as it elaborates point mentioned in 4.

Thus, your logic is true but I guess the order is correctly mentioned in the existing solution as 3241.
