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: A large number of students who have passed their XII Std. terminal examination in the country could not get admission to colleges as the number of seats available are grossly inadequate.

Courses of Action:

  1. The evaluation system of XII Std. terminal examination should be made more tough so that fewer students pass the examination.
  2. The Government should encourage the private sector to open new colleges by providing them land at cheaper rate.
  3. The rich people should be asked to send their wards to foreign countries for higher studies enabling the needy students to get admission in colleges within the country.

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

Answer: Option B


Clearly, reducing the number of aspirants for admission to colleges or sending the students of well-to-do families to foreign countries for higher studies, is no proper solution. So, both I and HI do not follow. The right solution is to increase the number of colleges so as to accommodate the increasing number of admission-seekers. So, only II follows.

The option B still seems to be incorrect. The situation is that there is deficiency of seats. Its not about government promoting the private sector. Government themself can start education institutes.
