Thanks @Sunil,

Your explanation helped me to understand why it's not option 1.

I am not understanding this. Please help me to get it.

In option 1, they used the definitive word all should not appear in conclusion. And in option 2, it's like a suggestion should not become a conclusion. So option D is the right one.

It is written that It is "recommended" that Management Information System be developed'. But nowhere is it written that there's a "need"/necessity to monitor the performance of workers.

I agree with you @ Varun. Nowhere Workers is mentioned.

In order to give the feedback efficiently.

It's necessary to monitor and evaluation.

So option E is correct.

@ Varun ---
This is likely to give a feedback on the performance of the functionaries and the efficacy with which services are being delivered.

from this statement we can conclude I and II

But there is no description about the workers. How could we conclude performance of workers need not to be monitored.
