- (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: If the retired Professors of the same Institutes are also invited to deliberate on restructuring of the organisation, their contribution may be beneficial to the Institute.
Courses of Action:
- Management may seek opinion of the employees before calling retired professors.
- Management should involve experienced people for the systematic restructuring of the organisation.
Also, calling retired people directly without consultation may brew dissatisfaction, discontent with senior working professionals, because they are not even consulted.
Hence, may have repercussions on efficiency and morale of existing workforce. The consultation gives a SENSE OF VALUE to existing employees.
So, both I and II follow.
I would stress the "May be beneficial. " part of the statement. That means there is no certainty that such a course of action will actually work.
So, both I & II follow.
Hence, option 2 follows.
