No, Answer is wrong according to me.

Sunita is not an industrious and organized human she can take rest it is not possible because she has no clear taking about.

So, Answer is neither nor.

Sunita isn't industrious at all because from the given statement we can't conclude that Sunita is industrious. She has a busy schedule but this doesn't mean that she is industrious. So 2nd conclusion is at once rejected. As far as the 1st conclusion is concerned, it is already mentioned that all organised person find time to rest.

So Sunita, which is also finding time for rest, must be an organized woman.

So only conclusion 1 should follow.

It is nowhere mentioned all busy people are industrious, hence sunitha may not be industrious.

I'm looked up industrious to make sure I had a clear understanding of the word and I found it to mean "diligent and hardworking". Just because Sunita has a busy schedule does not infer that she is "diligent and hardworking".

Organised people find time to rest. But there is no statement that unorganised will not find time to rest. Sunitha can be organised or might be lazy also. The Only thing that we can deduce is that she finds time to rest.

Not only the organized needs rest and then sunita might no be organized.

Confused with the answer.

D is out of the box. There is no mention of being industrious.
