Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 1 (Q.No. 10)
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: 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:

  1. Management may seek opinion of the employees before calling retired professors.
  2. Management should involve experienced people for the systematic restructuring of the organisation.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
Clearly, the statement stresses that the contribution of retired Professors shall be beneficial. This means that these people's experience regarding working of the organisation is helpful. So, only course II follows.

Why can not A be true?

Kos said:   10 years ago
I agree with @Akash. Why A cannot follow?

Because it is beneficial for institute so nobody relating to this institute would have any problem.

It says retired people "may be" beneficial, not shall be.

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.

Agree partially with @Ranju.

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.

I think option A could also be a possible answer (along with b) since the employees who actually work in the institution may have better understanding of the "real" problems. Their suggestions might be valuable too and worth considering.

I think whatever is done in an institution is not consulted with the employees until and unless it has anything to do with them. Steps taken for the improvement of the institution should solely be the choice of the chairman or principal.

Point 1 is trivial in this case since it would be implied that the employees would be consulted for the scenario depicted. However, the statement emphasises more on the inclusion of retired professionals which narrows down the area of scope.

Hence, option 2 follows.
