  • (E) If both I and II follow.


Statement: The Meteorology Department has forecast that a severe cyclonic storm would hit coastal Andhra Pradesh and Orissa in the next forty-eight hours.

Courses of Action:

  1. The local administration should advise the fishermen not to go to dangerous area in the sea.
  2. The local administration should alert the people of coastal areas of these two states and they should be prepared to shift to safer places.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows

I also agree, with the local people including the fisherman, also either option may not come we cannot advise only fishermen to not go there, we have to inform all, accordingly the answer should be 2 follows.

If the boat topples due to the cyclonic blow that is just that. It is also not mentioned how strong the cyclones might be. In addition, the cyclones' direction of travel cannot be defined 100%, therefore no area can be called safe. So everyone including fisherman should evacuate the areas.

I agree, and could also add that the local administration should always advise against going to dangerous areas of the sea, therefore the action is not strictly a result of the statement.

I agree, the people include fishermen as well. Additionally, during a cyclonic storm most areas of the sea would be dangerous, so it is not correct to consider that only certain areas need to be avoided.

I feel the same way that it should be either of them because people include all who are a part of the two states.

Kindly revert back.

Am I right if I don't agree with it because its quite obvious that if residents of coastal area are informed then this includes those fishermen too?
