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

  • (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: Every year, at the beginning or at the end of the monsoons, we have some cases of conjunctivitis, but this year, it seems to be a major epidemic, witnessed after nearly four years.

Courses of Action:

  1. Precautionary measures should be taken after every four years to check this epidemic.
  2. People should be advised to drink boiled water during rainy season.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
The disease occurs at the end of monsoons every year. So, precautionary measures every four years shall not help. The second course of action shall be a preventive measure. So, only course II follows.

Conjunctivitis has no relationship with drinking water.

So, E.

You are right @Parn.

What is the relation between drinking boiled water and conjunctivitis?

It occurs due to viruses, bacteria, allergens, dust, chlorine, smoke or something like that. Drinking boiled or unboiled water has to do nothing with it.

Why the people not advised to drink boiled water throughout year. However that isn't mentioned in the given lines as done with other question.

I don't get what the hell conjuctivitis has to do with drinking boiled water or in the worst case washing the eyes with the same, even after cooling it down. Impractical.
