Question 3

Statements:

Engineering graduates have grown in large numbers. But the country is still facing a shortage of good engineers. The starting salaries have come down. Either the young graduates do not get any jobs, or they get jobs which offer a low starting salary. If it is not a problem of plenty, then what should be done?

Courses of Action:
  1. Engineering seats should be reduced.
  2. The starting salaries should be doubled.
 A

Only I follows.

 B

Only II follows.

 C

I or II follows.

 D

Neither I nor II follows.

Soln.
Ans: d

The problem can't be solved by reducing the seats, or doubling the salaries. The root of the problem is badly oriented engineering syllabi. Starting salaries are lower because the employers have had bad experiences with earlier recruits and want some time to see the suitability of candidates.

Course of action II and III logically follow.


Question 5

Statements:

Many political activists have decided to stage demonstrations and block traffic movement in the city during peak hours to protest against the steep rise in prices of essential commodities.

Courses of Action:
  1. The government should immediately ban all forms of agitations in the country.
  2. The police authority of the city should deploy additional forces all over the city to help traffic movement in the city.
  3. The state administration should carry out preventive arrests of the known criminals staying in the city.
 A

Only I.

 B

Only II.

 C

Only III.

 D

Only I and II.

Soln.
Ans: b

It is not possible to ban agitations in a democratic country. So course I is ruled out. This agitation has nothing to do with criminals. Arresting them will not solve the traffic problems. So course III is also ruled out.
