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

  • (D) If neither I nor II follows
  • (E) If both I and II follow.


Statement: Certain mining industries in Gujarat may come to a standstill because of the notification issued by the Department of Environment and Forest banning mining operations and industries alike within 25 kms of National Park, the game sanctuary and reserve forest areas.

Courses of Action:

  1. The Department should be asked to immediately withdraw the notification.
  2. The Government should make effort to shift the parks, sanctuaries and reserve forests to other non-mining areas.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
Clearly, none of the courses of action follows because firstly, the notification is issued to protect the natural environment and so cannot be withdrawn and secondly, the sanctuaries etc. cannot be shifted.

According to me, 2 should be the correct answer. As mining cannot be done somewhere as natural resources are not found everywhere. Where as sanctuary can be shifted as they are man made not natural.

According to me, the first action should be taken. The government should take their notice back because.

Industries when they had set up their plant at that place the government must have given their permission to open this industry now the government can't all of sudden stop this industry. With there short notice. Thousands of people will become unemployed and there is skilled labor.
