Logical Reasoning - Statement and Conclusion - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Conclusion - Section 1 (Q.No. 45)
Directions to Solve

In each question below is given a statement followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true, then consider the two conclusions together and decide which of them logically follows beyond a reasonable doubt from the information given in the statement.

Give answer:

  • (A) If only conclusion I follows
  • (B) If only conclusion II follows
  • (C) If either I or II follows
  • (D) If neither I nor II follows and
  • (E) If both I and II follow.


Statements: Domestic demand has been increasing faster than the production of indigenous crude oil.


  1. Crude oil must be imported.
  2. Domestic demand should be reduced.
Only conclusion I follows
Only conclusion II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
The statement mentions that demand for oil is increasing faster than the production. So, either the demand must be reduced or oil must be imported to cope with the increasing demand. Thus, either I or II follows.

A Should be the correct option, Because oil is a daily necessary thing, you can't force to reduce the oil use.

It's not Possible to decrease demand because there is no alternative so only A follows.

Crude oil and its products are a necessity, not a luxury. Decreasing its demand is just lame. So, A should be correct.

We cannot reduce the demand of anything until an alternative is found, there is no mention of that hence it should be only the first One option A should be the right answer.

To me - E must be correct. When demand exceeds supply you can increase supply or decrease demand OR do both.

Option A seems correct to me as oil is a prerequisite for several industries and domestic consumption, so demand for it is something that you cannot reduce forcibly.

Option E is right,as both options can be worked upon to improve the scenario.
