Statements: The distance of 900 km by road between Bombay and Jafra will be reduced to 280 km by sea. This will lead to a saving of Rs. 7.92 crores per annum on fuel.

Conclusions:

Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow

Note, here it is clearly mentioned that "The distance of 900 km by road between Bombay and Jafra will be reduced to 280 km by sea" but nowhere mentioned that it is cheaper than road transportation.

So, option B is the only correct answer.

If we can read the last paragraph which is this will lead to a saving of Rs 7.92 crores per annum on fuel. It means it talks about fuel not on the fare of transportation or involving money.

According to me, only 2 follows because they didn't mention any financial matters in road transport as compared to sea transport. So only 2 follows.

But here are we taking about general case or about specific case. It should be A.

The statement clearly mentions that travelling by sea will lead to a saving of Rs.7.92 crores p.a. on fuel. And in the light of the statement we can assert that Transportation by sea is cheaper than that by road.

The statement is about saving the money on fuel but not saving the fuel.

@Nishant.

Did you read the last part of the sentence it says that " This will lead to a saving of Rs. 7.92 crores per annum on "FUEL".

It means that the statement is not also talking about money but abstractly speaking they are going to save also the "FUEL".

As per statement saving of fuel will occur only when sea route is followed. So its OK with second conclusion but with first conclusion that is not sufficient to tell whether it is cheap or not.

Darshit said:   10 years ago
Here we can save fuel so second option is true but due to after reducing the distance the traveling become cheaper. So the both options are true.

I do feel both the conclusions are correct. As the sea transportation is cheaper than road also gives correct conclusion about statement answer must be option E.
