Statement: There are more than 200 villages in the hill area of Uttar Pradesh which are severely damaged due to cyclone and it causes an extra burden of Rs 200 crore on State Government for relief and rehabilitation work.

Courses of Action:

  1. People of hill area should be shifted to other safer places.
  2. State Government should ask more financial support from Central Government.
  3. Government should levy relief tax to the corporate sector to ease the additional burden.

None follows
Only I and II follow
Only II and III follow
Only I and III follow
None of these
Answer: Option
Since severe damage has been caused by cyclone, people in affected villages ought to be shifted to safer places. Also, since relief work entails huge amounts, the State Government needs to pool up funds by either of the ways given in II and III. So, I and either II or III follow.

How can it be none of these?

I think the answer must be = B.

There should be an option which says both 'B' and 'D'. Since such an option does not exist none of these is the correct answer.

In my opinion, that should be option B: Government cannot levy tax relief to corporate sectors since they are not responsible for it. They can only solicit for help and not mandate them to pay.

As per my knowledge, the answer is option E.

Having an option of "none of these" means that neither options 1, 2, nor 3 were held as valid. If you were trying to get across that any of them could be valid responses, then provide an option of "1, 2, and 3 follow" rather than "none".

It is fundamentally invalid to use "none" in a way that actually means "all". It's just backwards.

The first and last choice are semantically identical. This looks clearly like a mistaken question. The last option should be either All of them or Either I, II, or III, which is clearly supported by the explanation.

Why would industry sector aid in the extra pooling of money it is to government to handle hence B.
