Each of the following questions contains a small paragraph followed by a question on it. Read each paragraph carefully and answer the question given below it.

Priya said: (Dec 10, 2010)  
The paragraph mainly based on the control of harmful drugs and it should be reduced in various ways. so answer D is correct than the other options

priya, i think you have not read the para with concentration. It is clearly mentioned that 'the consumption of drug can not be prevented only by banning their sells but by applying other methods as well.' so i think option B is more closer than option D because we can predict from the para that consuption of drugs can be always reduced nt eliminated by applying various methods. So, option B is correct.

Ramya said: (Jan 28, 2011)  
In the first line itself it is given that 'the consumption of drug can not be prevented only by banning their sells but by applying other methods as well. So the answer is wrong.

Neha said: (Feb 23, 2011)  
The passage morely tells that the way of preventing comsumption of drugs is banning its sale. Others are supporting measures taken to reduce its consumption. So the major priority is given to the statement D.

Nikninja said: (Feb 25, 2011)  
Ajit, you are right, and both priya and neha, read the last line of para. The last line of the paragraph is totally in favour of option B.

I don't think the answer mentioned in the site is right as the paragraph clearly talks about ways other than banning the sale of drugs which can be useful to decrease the consumption of drugs. This means in total, the paragraph believes in the concept that consumption of drugs cab be reduced which is clearly indicated in option B. So Option B is the right answer.

"The consumption of harmful drugs by the people can be prevented not only by banning their sale in the market..."
This clearly states that consumption of drugs can be prevented by two methods.so i think option D

Vidhyanand said: (Oct 14, 2011)  
@ Nikninja : the last line describes the use of proper medical facilities for their rehabilitation to scale down use of drugs. but the 1st lines describe the ways to prevent drugs.

Sid said: (Sep 8, 2013)  
I go with option B too, para clearly depicts steps to reduce drug sage it says bannin is not the solution, btw is it that the answers may not be accuratein these papers?

Shameek Sarkhel said: (May 14, 2014)  
Option B should be the answer as according to the statement the prevention of drugs is not only the main area of focus here. It is the reduction of drug usage along with prevention.

Saurabh Choudhary said: (Sep 16, 2014)  
In my view option E will be more appropriate.

As the para introduces us the ways through which and how it can be eliminated.

Adam said: (Sep 16, 2014)  
"The consumption of harmful drugs by the people can be prevented not only by banning their sale in the market. ".

This statement does not imply that the consumption of harmful drugs can be eliminated. It suggests prevention, which means, through education, less people might consume illicit drugs although the problem would still exist to a lesser extent. Prevention does not mean elimination which suggests the problem would be eradicated.

I would therefore go with option B as drug-use can be reduced through prevention but not eliminated.

I can see why the answer should be option D, however I think the answer is badly-worded.

Near banning the drugs is not a proper one but we have to chanalise the drug sales.

Matt said: (Jul 21, 2015)  
Drugs cannot be eliminated by simply banning sale because it generates greater profit for criminal organizations if they are illegal (less accessible); going hand-in-hand with people emotionally/mentally dependent on drugs.

As long as we are human; we have emotion. The moment we lose our emotion we will have no need to escape the negative emotions we experience; hence no longer needing drugs as an escape. Prohibition on alcohol didn't work, did it?

Ashish said: (Dec 11, 2015)  
In this passage, it is recommended that drugs addiction can be cure in any circumstances.

Rajan Kumar said: (Jul 5, 2016)  
According to me, the answer must be B. As whole passage is about how we can reduce the drug usage. Option D is just a way to reduce consumption but not the meaning of the whole para.

Samneet said: (Apr 23, 2017)  
Option B is correct. As clearly written that consumption can be prevented which means reduced not eliminated. Also, it is impossible to eliminate anything.

Manish Yadav said: (Aug 16, 2017)  
According to me, the answer should be B, we know that consumption can be reduced through these all rehabilitation process (but the gist was that it can be reduced).

Manoj said: (Apr 15, 2018)  
I agree B is the correct option.

Meera said: (Aug 11, 2018)  
Option E, channelize means to hollow out something which has a close meaning to elimination, moreover, a number of measures have been discussed in the para, which should be seen as a collective entity, a plan.

Menna Elnaggar said: (Nov 6, 2018)  
The word "help" may indicate that banning drugs sale is on a factor of eliminating it.
