Statement: A large number of people visiting India from country X have been tested positive for carrying viruses of a killer disease.

Courses of Action:

1. The government of India should immediately put a complete ban on people coming to India from country X including those Indians who are settled in country X.
2. The government of India should immediately set up detection centres at all its airports and seaports to identify and quarantine those who are tested positive.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Explanation:
Clearly, the non-infected persons should not be debarred from visiting India. So, only course II follows.

37.

Statement: There has been less than forty percent voter turnout in the recent assembly elections.

Courses of Action:

1. The election commission should cancel the entire election process as the votes cast are not adequate to represent people.
2. The election commission should take away the voting rights of those who did not exercise their rights.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Explanation:
Re-election would demand repeated expenses and following course II would reduce the voter base permanently. Instead, awareness should be created among the people to use their right to vote effectively. So, neither I nor II follows.

38.

Statement: Most of the development plans develop in papers only.

Courses of Action:

1. The in-charges should be instructed to supervise the field-work regularly.
2. The supply of paper to such departments should be cut short.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Explanation:
Clearly, proper supervision alone can see the development in practice. So, only course I follows.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Explanation:
Clearly, both the courses of action seem appropriate to prevent black-marketing in case of shortage. Hence, both I and II follow.

40.
