Statement and Course of Action (Reasoning) Practice Test

Friends, we have already worked with the practice examples of Statement and Assumptions and Statement and Arguments type problems. Now we shall look at Statement and Course of Action. Check the statements given below and say which course of action we should take. Give answer
1 If only I follows
2 If only II follows
3 If either I or II follows
4 If neither I nor II follows
5 If both I and II follow

1. Statement : Many medical and engineering graduates are taking up jobs in administrative services and in Banks.
Course of Action :
I. All the professionals should be advised to refrain from taking up such jobs.
II. The Government should appoint a committee to find out the reasons for these professionals taking up such jobs and to suggest remedial measures.

2. Statement : Mr. X, an active member of the union, often insults his superiors in the office with his rude behavior.
Course of Action :
I. He should be transferred to some other department.
II. The matter should be referred to the union.

Important Note : This question is a bit misleading. Here people tend to choose the answer Option 5 (both I and II follow). But with the close look we can see the word SUPERIOR in the given statement. That means "Higher in Rank". If Mr. X behaves rudely with his superiors, then automatically they will simply ask him to leave his job.
If we use the word SUBORDINATE (lower in rank) in the place of SUPERIOR, then the answer should be 2 (Only II follows). Because, transferring (as in the option I) him to another department doesn't solve the problem at all. 

3. Statement : Some serious blunders were detected in the accounts section of a factory.
Course of Action :
I. An efficient team of auditors should be appointed to check their accounts.
II. A show cause notice should be issued to all the employees involved in the irregularity.

4. Statement : Four districts in state A have been experiencing severe drought for the last three years resulting into exodus of people from these districts.
Course of Action :
I. The government should immediately start food for work program in the district to put a halt to the Exodus.
II. The government should make effort to provide drinking / potable water to these districts.

5. Statement : Majority of the students in many schools do not pass in the final examination.
Course of Action :
I. These schools should be closed down as these have become unproductive.
II. The teachers of these schools should immediately be retrenched. 

Important Note : Here comes another misleading question. Maximum of us don't know the meaning of the word "retrenched". We may feel it means something similar to remove or replace. But retrench means "to reduce". Here reducing teachers will increase the problem.  

6. Statement : Many sports persons today are more attracted by the glamour than by the sport they pursue.
Course of Action :
I. Sports persons should not be permitted to act as model or brand ambassadors.
II. Sports persons should be paid higher compensation for their achievements in sports.

7. Statement : Indian Airlines is running in loss.
Course of Action :
I. It should be privatized.
II. It must curb the expenditure by removing concessions in the fare to MPs, bureaucrats and airline officers.

8. Statement : People in the locality were agitated as more than thirty people died in a building collapse.
Course of Action :
I. Government should immediately announce compensations for the affected families.
II. Authorities should take a stringent action against builders tending to compromise over quality of material used.
