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.

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: The alert villagers caught a group of dreaded dacoits armed with murderous weapons.

Courses of Action:

  1. The villagers should be provided sophisticated weapons.
  2. The villagers should be rewarded for their courage and unity.

[A]. Only I follows
[B]. Only II follows
[C]. Either I or II follows
[D]. Neither I nor II follows
[E]. Both I and II follow

Answer: Option B


Clearly, I is not practically viable. However, villagers should be rewarded for their courage, to keep up their spirits in future. Thus, II follows.

If in place of 'logically follow(s) for pursuing' there is only 'logically follow' then what would be the answer?

It is not villagers job to stop people with murderous weapons, it is the police's job. If you reward people for taking the law into their own hands then you encourage vigilantism. To encourage vigilantism is to encourage chaos.
