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:

  • (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: 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.


  1. The residents in these wards should economise on water on Friday.
  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
Clearly, the information has been given beforehand so that the residents can collect water on the previous day and use less water on Friday. So, both I and II follow.

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!

It has to be "either or" why would one both save and economise.

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).
