Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 1 (Q.No. 7)
Directions to Solve

In each question below is given a statement followed by two courses of action numbered I and II. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true and on the basis of the information given in the statement, decide which of the suggested courses of action logically follow(s) for pursuing.

Give answer

  • (A) If only I follows
  • (B) If only II follows
  • (C) If either I or II follows
  • (D) If neither I nor II follows
  • (E) If both I and II follow.


Statement: There is an unprecedented increase in migration of villagers to urban areas as repeated crop failure has put them into precarious financial situation.

Courses of Action:

  1. The villagers should be provided with alternate source of income in their villages which will make them stay put.
  2. The migrated villagers should be provided with jobs in the urban areas to help them survive.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
Clearly, increased migration would add to the burden on city's infrastructure. So, attempts should be made to make the villagers feel comfortable in the villages itself. So, only course I follows.

Nothing is mentioned about the city's infrastructure. Also, if you want to take it one step further - nothing is mentioned about whether we want the villagers to survive, feel comfortable etc.

Suppose I am a very evil entity, I would let my villagers go to the big city, starve to death and eat some popcorn.

Nothing really follows here. An example for a conclusion would be "there are fewer people living in the village now" or something like that I guess.

The correct answer should be C.

In the above- stated question, we are not focusing on main concern that is how to deal with Crop Failure despite providing them with an alternative means of securing necessities of life. So I think none is followed.

Please let me know if I am wrong.

I think the answer should be B. Because there's no-where mentioned that it would be a burden on the infrastructure on the urban areas rather than it clearly states that the villagers should be provided jobs to help them survive as their financial condition is weak.

Let me know if I am wrong.

Only one is true. Problem is that there is a reapted crop failure thus people migrate for job and if they got alternative than don't migrate. 2nd Courses of Action is not related to statement. Problem is migration of people not they don't get job in urban area.
