Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 1 (Q.No. 4)
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: Exporters in the capital are alleging that commercial banks are violating a Reserve Bank of India directive to operate a post shipment export credit denominated in foreign currency at international rates from January this year.

Courses of Action:

  1. The officers concerned in the commercial banks are to be suspended.
  2. The RBI should be asked to stop giving such directives to commercial banks.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
The statement mentions that the commercial banks violate a directive issued by the RBI. The remedy is only to make the banks implement the Act. So, none of the courses follows.

I think the right answer should be option A.

Ojas said:   3 years ago
The Right answer is D.

RBI is the head itself which set norms in the welfare of the economy.

And suspend of officers is a harsh action.

Nayan said:   3 years ago
I think the answer is A because it is written that " officers concerned" which states that they are responsible for the violation and thus, should be suspended.

Tanisha said:   3 years ago
The correct answer should be option D.

It is quite possible that the officers are forced to violate RBI directives under the pressure of the higher authorities of the commercial bank. Thus the matter must be investigated and action must be taken against the main person responsible for causing such nuisance.

I think the correct answer is A.

Divya said:   7 years ago
I am really confused on this question. Because in course of action A it is talking about suspension. And I think that giving an ultimatum or warning is far better course of action than suspending him. But the answer is quite the opposite.

Please anyone explain me.

We can't harsh action like suspension but not sure about 2 so 1 Statement is not valid.

Balaji said:   8 years ago
In this case, Commercial bank could have made a call to violate RBI directive. Hence suspending the officers may not be relevant, secondly the statement doesn't talk about any authority hence D is correct.

As per my understanding answer should (B). As Reserve bank has right to ask to stop giving such directives to commercial banks.

As far as (A) is concerned bank can not suspend the concerned officers without giving warning letters. So only (B) is valid answer.

What do you think guys?

Swagat said:   9 years ago
I think it should be C because either the officials must be suspended for violating the RBI directive or the RBI should stop giving such directive if the commercial banks are free to not follow it.
