Logical Reasoning - Course of Action - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Course of Action - Section 1 (Q.No. 6)
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: Most of those who study in premier engineering colleges in India migrate to developed nations for better prospects in their professional pursuits.

Courses of Action:

  1. All the students joining these colleges should be asked to sign a bond at the time of admission to the effect that they will remain in India at least for ten years after they complete education.
  2. All those students who desire to settle in the developed nations should be asked to pay entire cost of their education which the government subsidises.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
Clearly, no student can be bound to live and work in the country against his wish. So, I does not follow. However, it is quite right to recover the extra benefits awarded to students if they do not serve their own country. So, II follows.

I disagree with the answer.

The right answer should be C either 1 or 2 since the government has the right to recover the amount they subsidized for the students, and so it could be done by either of the two ways. Firstly; would be for the students to earn in the same country and pay up by way of tax etc for a certain period i.e option 1 OR the other option being paying of the subsidized amount before leaving the country for another better well developed nation i.e option 2.

Also the student will not be bound to stay in his own country as he/she will have the 'option' to sign the bond, if not he/she could continue without taking govt subsidies and pursue the same.

I think that the answer should be "D". Because fist of all we cannot take extreme course of action for a problem while 1st option is an extreme option so it is wrong.

And in 2nd option the word "settle" is mention and while in statement "migrate" word is used.

There is a difference in these two words and second this is that it is not necessary that if some is migrating to another then he/she will settle there and 3rd thing is that to keep desire about anything is different but after completion the desire is different thing.

Answer B is the feasible one. Singing bond doesn't guarantee you the similar kind of job in the country. And yes it could also affect against the college as people wouldn't take admission only. They will go abroad for that also course of action means it should be the action which should not create another problem. And should be practice at the same time. B is fine as if you have taken benefits from the government you are expected to benefit them as well at least for some time.

I think the right answer should be D. By subsidizing educational fee how is the government ensuring that the students stay and are employed in the same country? for that, the college itself should provide with job/placement opportunities in companies located in the country. I think paying full education fees would not stop students migrating abroad if they have the money to invest anyways.

I disagree with the answer above.
A bond sign is necessary. This way students are bound to serve their country after graduation. It does not limit his prospects of going abroad. The terms and conditions of the bond can be made such that its possible to break a bond by paying a monetary amount equivalent to the total course fee that was subsidized by the govt. including interests.

Ya I agree, A should be the answer.

It is possible that after completing their education, they can go for foreign prospects even after paying the entire cost of education assuming that they will get greater package.

A won't be the ideal solution but it will be more effective out of these two.

Any other thoughts? Please share.

How can B be the answer? Recovering subsidies can't be the action as this may partially recover the financial loss, but what about the losses of seats for the potential students who would have served the country after passing out if they had got the chance to study?

Hence this action can not be the to me, the answer is D.

The should be A only. Since the problem is that people migrate to developed countries. Not how to lessen the impact of it. Only A would solve the problem. B would only give financial satisfaction.

Every people is free to take decision and another thing is that there was no deal like this at the time of subsidies was given to student so I completely disagree with this course of action.

Do not think over it emotionally?

Point is here to recover the expenses which government has done on those particular students. So the answer should be 'B' only.
