Statements: The national norm is 100 beds per thousand populations but in this state, 150 beds per thousand are available in the hospitals.

Only conclusion I follows
Only conclusion II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows

Statement is absolute truth. There should not be any use of morality or ethics while answering or our common sense.

So, how can (B) be the answer?

I would go for (d). correct me If I am wrong.

If it is a norm then definitely some solid ground work is done and made it a norm so 1 and 2 follows.

The national norm not necessary means adequate care. What if the long-term practice in a hospital is inadequate?

I would prefer D instead of B.

@Sri.

May be it is written "our national norm", leading it to be a wrong answer.

The national norm is 100 beds per thousand populations but in this state, 150 beds per thousand are available, which indirectly means it has satisfied the national norms.
