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: Severe drought is reported to have set in several parts of the country.

Courses of Action:

  1. Government should immediately make arrangement for providing financial assistance to those affected.
  2. Food, water and fodder should immediately be sent to all these areas to save the people and cattle.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
In the break-out of a natural calamity, the basic duty of the government becomes to provide the basic amenities essential to save the lives of people and cattle. Providing financial assistance to all would put undue burden on the country's resources. So, only II follows.

Option B is the correct answer. Financial assistance can be given afterward.

Both should follow, as people need money as well.

Abhijeet Sharma said:   11 months ago
Financial assistance doesn't quantify the size of money. Logic says Assistant in time of need is to help not to make the victim rich.

So, Both should follow.

How come it assumed financial assistance is more than a basic requirement need? Please explain me.

Only B follows.

Because in the first action word 'immediately' is there so hence it will be out.

I think E should be the answer because not only basic amenities are enough but financial assistance is also required to come back to normal life.

The word immediate makes the difference.

Yes, the government should provide financial support too, but well after providing essential needs as mention in conclusion 2.
