Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

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: The cinema halls are incurring heavy losses these days as people prefer to watch movies in home on TV than to visit cinema halls.

Courses of Action:

  1. The cinema halls should be demolished and residential multi-storey buildings should be constructed there.
  2. The cinema halls should be converted into shopping malls.

[A]. Only I follows
[B]. Only II follows
[C]. Either I or II follows
[D]. Neither I nor II follows
[E]. Both I and II follow

Answer: Option D


Doing away with cinema halls is no solution. Hence, none of the courses follows. Instead, certain incentives and promotional schemes should be awarded to cinema hall owners so that they could manage to draw in crowds.

They are losses, not a pause in profit but outright losses. So, the courses of action suggested are all viable.

Yes exactly. If they are in heavy losses then why keep it? Take an example of kingfisher there were heavy losses. So it went off.

I feel like this is not logic, it's just a matter of opinion. Fact, doing away with cinema halls CAN be a solution and it is irrational to say it couldn't be.
