Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 1 (Q.No. 31)
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: A large number of engineering graduates in the country are not in a position to have gainful employment at present and the number of such engineers is likely to grow in the future.

Courses of Action:

  1. The government should launch attractive employment generation schemes and encourage these graduates to opt for such schemes to use their expertise and knowledge effectively.
  2. This happened due to proliferation of engineering colleges in the country and thereby lowered the quality of the engineering graduates. Those colleges which are not equipped to impart quality education should be closed down.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
The emphasis should be not on the Government putting all the engineering graduates to jobs but on the colleges producing not 'degree-holders' but real technical minds which could compete well for gainful employment. So, only course II follows.

Answer should be only A.

Here, 1 follows and 2 doesn't follow, because in 2 we should also think about the students who are studying in the college.

My opinion would be E because they have given growing in future - so that must be stopped for which 2 is required and for current people, jobs should be given for which 1 is required.

I agree @Vibhore.

Closing colleges is a harsh step. Instead quality of education is improved.

I agree @Vibhore.

Closing colleges is not a solution. So Answer should be A.

But what about the old students that have passed out for them. The government has to take some steps. If it was logical?

"On the basis of the information given in the statement, decide". It was not given in the statement that "This happened due to proliferation of engineering colleges in the country".

Therefore that is an assumption. Answer D would be correct.

Answer should be A guys.

Closing educational institutes isn't a solution. Rather measures to should be taken to make these non quality institutes worth the matter!

So first one for job employment seems to be good as any govt would want unemployment to disperse and employment and prosperity of its citizens a priority.

So answer is A. B not never because it is too harsh a step to be taken in a situation!

Correct option should be E because government should take initiative in such circumstances.

RITU agree with you completely.
