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 answer because may be its better to sign a bond at the time of admission.

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.

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.

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.
