Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 1 (Q.No. 8)
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: As stated in the recent census report the female to male ratio is alarmingly low.

Courses of Action:

  1. The government should conduct another census to verify the results.
  2. The government should immediately issue orders to all the departments to encourage people to improve the ratio.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
A census is always conducted with the utmost precision, leaving chances of only negligible differences. So, I does not follow. Further, the ratio can be improved by creating awareness among the masses and abolishing female foeticide. Thus, only course II follows.

Can anyone please elaborate? Might be quite a level of medical knowledge but is that even possible to have child of your choice?

Exactly esp since we are trying to reduce population how can one go and preach to "improve" ratio?

Judging from the answer and that this site is of Indian origin, I assume it refers to an Indian government, where female foeticide is not something unheard.

Our govt has increased benefits to girl child by introducing programmes like Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Yojana and some Anganwadi programmes.
