The total number of different five-sentence paragraphs that can be formed equals to 6.

Work Step by Step

We know that the situation involves making choices with five sentences. We use the fundamental counting principle to find the number of ways to form different five-sentence paragraphs. Multiply the number of choices for each of the five sentences. That is, $1\times 3\times 2\times 1\times 1=6$ Hence, there are 6 different ways to form different five-sentence paragraphs.
