    blades in order to use all...

    Hello.

    I have been doing a test (I'm preparing for the exam).
    I'm confused with a reading part.

    There is a sentence:

    In an area that is very windy, it's much better to use large blades in _ to use all of the wind available.

    I should put one of the words in the gap.

    1) effect
    2) favour
    3) attempt
    4) order


    The answer was "order". I know the meaning of "order", but I really don't understand it in the context.
    I used "attempt". (Sure, it's totaly wrong. It's randomly).

    Can you explain to me, why should I use order in that context?

    Thanks in advance.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
