Problem

The structures of another class of ceramic, high-temperature superconductors are shown in figures a-d.

One of the structural features that appears to be essential for high-temperature superconductivity is the presence of planar sheets of copper and oxygen atoms. As the number of sheets in each unit cell increases, the temperature for the onset of superconductivity increases. Order the four structures from lowest to the highest superconducting temperature.
