Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion
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.
- (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: Four districts in State A have been experiencing severe drought for the last three years resulting into exodus of people from these districts.
Courses of Action:
- The government should immediately start food for work programme in the district to put a halt to the exodus.
- The government should make since efforts to provide drinking/potable water to these districts
If the sentence suggests drought. That means water, not food. I think the correct answer is the editor of these questions needs to be fired.
Option 1: Since its drought food and water is of main priority.
Option 1: Provides food.
Option 2: It provides water to all.
But I don't agree with TOM, LOUISE and CHRIS. Because when there is condition of drought then not only people face the problems regarding drinking water but also face the problem regarding the water needed for the farming/agricultural needs which will also affect the production of food.
There is exodus (mass departure) because of the drought, the question doesn't say anything about a shortage of food or work, so I don't understand how option I follows?
Drought is only a lack of water. Not Food.
Here the question is about drought, not about the existing or non existing opportunities of other sort- indirect solutions.
