Logical Reasoning - Statement and Conclusion - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Conclusion - Section 1 (Q.No. 43)
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 standard of education in private schools is much better than Municipal and Zila Parishad-run schools.


  1. The Municipal and Zila Pariskad should make serious efforts to improve standard of their schools.
  2. All Municipal and Zila Parishad schools should be closed immediately.
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 solution to the problem is not to close down the Municipal and Zila Parishad-run schools but to strive to improve the standard of education of these schools. So, only I follows while II does not.

I think the Statement 1 has to be the course of Action and not a conclusion.

In the 1st statement, it was mentioned about improving the standard of the school not about improving the standard of the education both are different. Can anyone clarify that statement follows.

I say it is D, The Statment Says Only About Standard Education Only Not About Other Things.

Shiva said:   4 years ago
Yeah, the conclusion should not be an opinion, if that opinion is not mentioned in the Statement. Because everyone's perspective will be different.

Here they are asking for the conclusion and not any course of action, the answer should be D.

Vidya said:   6 years ago
Yes, I think the answer should be neither I nor II follows.

I have one doubt. Here they have just compared the status and did not ask us to comment on how to improve the quality right?
