Why do we use the QWERTY keyboard, and not ABCDE?

In the early days, typing was done on a typewriter where the paper was rolled on a roller. The actual printing process was done behind the eye of the typist. So if any error was made by the typist, he needs to scroll the paper up, find the error and then re-position the paper properly, which is almost impossible. So the typist was looking for a solution. They just want to slow down the typing speed so that the possibilities of doing error will drop. The QWERTY layout was developed to slow down the typing speed and we are using this layout also in 2019.
