Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

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.

[A]. Only I and II follow
[B]. Only II and III follow
[C]. Only I and III follow
[D]. All follow
[E]. None of these

Answer: Option B


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.

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!

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

Why not D?

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

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

So answer is correct.

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