If action III doesn't solve the problem then it should not be a course of action @Trishul.

Problem: Train derailed (on a bridge or not, doesn't matter).

Solution should be towards replacing those tracks and ensuring proper maintenance.

The first step to achieving it is railways investigating and preparing a report to brief the government because action ca a=only be taken after the situation is thoroughly clarified. Action I takes care of that.

Loss of life and property should also be compensated which is action II. Action III is also important to prevent the situation exacerbating in case another derailment happens but it doesn't solve the problem of derailment itself.

Any how practically building wall strong enough isn't a solution for the issue. Cause if train details there the no wall strong enough to stop it. So it is important to compensate for destruction in sense of passengers and safety of the bridge and track for further use. Option A should be the solution.

The government should allocated funds to relatives of people who have affected and also make sure that this accidents won't happen in future.

The explanation itself states, "steps to avoid re-occurrence of such events and pay the sufferers adequate compensation".

Hence either B or D should be the answer.

Here I think fourth option is correct because government will definitely allocate funds to affected people.

The government should allocate funds as the reconstruction and strengthening of the bridge is also a compensation for the destruction and it is the responsibility of the government to pay the compensations to the families of people who died. Also the exact reason for accidents so that such accidents can be avoided in future.

But we have to prevent derailing of train from track, whether if we make stronger bridge because of derailing there is still injury to people.
