Logical Reasoning - Statement and Conclusion - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Conclusion - Section 1 (Q.No. 22)
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: The national norm is 100 beds per thousand populations but in this state, 150 beds per thousand are available in the hospitals.


  1. Our national norm is appropriate.
  2. The state's health system is taking adequate care in this regard.
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
Whether the national norm is appropriate or not cannot be said. So, I does not follow. However, more number of beds per thousand population are available in the state. So, II follows.

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.

Please help me with the answer of this question.

Thanks in advance.

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

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.

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