Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 3 (Q.No. 45)
Directions to Solve

In each question below is given a statement followed by three courses of action numbered I, II and III. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true, then decide which of the three given suggested courses of action logically follows for pursuing.


Statement: It is estimated that about twenty lakh people will visit the city during the ensuing festival.

Courses of Action:

  1. The civic authority should monitor the crowd and restrict entry of the people beyond a manageable number.
  2. The local police authority should be put on high alert to maintain law and order during the festival.
  3. All the hospitals in the city should be put on high alert in case of any eventuality.

Only I and II follow
Only II and III follow
Only I and III follow
All follow
None of these
Answer: Option
Clearly, people cannot be deprived of enjoying the festival for lack of arrangements. Also, it becomes necessary to deploy police to regulate big crowds and avert any mishap in public gatherings. Further, it costs nothing but might prove useful to put hospitals on alert to be ready to provide quick medical aid to patients in case of any eventuality. So, both II and III follow.

With all modern worlds, crowd management is demanded of all event organizers to avoid stampedes and associated life losses.

So, I would expect to see the numbers monitored or regulated for a safe event.

Lakh is a scientific term that refers to 10^5. That means 2000000 people.

The idea is that it will be a festival not about the number of lakhs.

So answer is correct.

Why not D?

What's wrong in I? "The civic authority should monitor the crowd " --This is true!

Its 20 people at a festival. Where they came from shouldn't matter and is discriminatory. E is the real choice.

Most places say that "management have the right to refuse admission". If there are too many people in the city, then the authorities should be able to restrict entry!
