Statements: Water supply in wards A and B of the city will be affected by about 50% on Friday because repairing work of the main lines is to be carried out.

Conclusions:

  2. The residents in these wards should store some water on the previous day.
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

Here economise means spend less so both follow.

These are the course of actions.

The conclusion should be 50 per cent of water won't be coming on Friday!

According to me if they store before the day, then there is no need to buy water. So answer should be option C (either 1 or 2).
