DEAD, BALL, FEAR, SHOP
The above mentioned letters have been placed in that order using a logic.

Can you find that logic?

A = 1, B = 2, C = 3....

DEAD = 4 + 5 + 1 + 4 = 14
BALL = 2 + 1 + 12 + 12 = 27
FEAR = 6 + 5 + 1 + 18 = 30
SHOP = 19 + 8 + 15 + 16 = 58

Now, 14 < 27 < 30 < 58

Therefore, the order
DEAD, BALL, FEAR, SHOP
