Discussion Forum : Statement and Conclusion - Section 3 (Q.No. 5)
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 best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.


  1. Your life will be dull if you don't face a problem.
  2. To escape from problems, you should always have some solutions with you.
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

The conclusion that follows the statement is conclusion B because only way to escape the problem is to face it.

Statement: The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.

For conclusion B: "To escape from problems, you should always have some solutions with you".

Now in a statement it's given that in order to escape a problem is TO SOLVE IT. Now conclusion B says, you SHOULD HAVE some solutions. It is not mandatory according to the statement for a person to have a solution but a will to solve it.

The statement says 'best way'.

There might be other ways but they are all 'solutions'; whether best or not.

So therefore, to escape your problems, you should have some solutions (best way or not).

Yeah @Jasmine is right. The best way i.e. there are many ways.

Solving the problem is the best way not the only way. So option B does not follow.

There is a possibility; may be we have the solution with the problem, we can find it; so the second option is good and the first option is true because if we do not fight with problem then we fill same.

No where the point of life comes into picture with the given statement. Similarly the point of being dull didn't come into the picture. It was only about solution for a problem. So option B should be the right answer.

Why can't option B follow the statement?

But why doesn't Option B follows. It means to escape from problem we should have a solution, isn't this direct follow ?
