# Course of Action 1

This type of reasoning questions consists of a statement which is followed by two courses of action numbered I and II. You have to analyze the problem discussed in the statement and decide which course of action should be followed to solve the problem.

1) Statement: A severe drought is reported in many states of the country.
Courses of action;

I. The government should immediately provide financial assistance to the people of the affected states.
II. The government should immediately send food, water, and fodder to the affected states to save people and livestock.

1. Only I follows
2. Only II follows
3. Either I or II follows
4. Neither I nor II follows
5. Both I and II follow

Explanation:

In this situation, the government should think about saving the lives of people and livestock by providing basic amenities like food and water. Providing financial assistance will not provide immediate relief and would put an extra burden on the funds.

2) Statement: A large number of people in the city die every year due to polluted drinking water.
Courses of action;

I. The government should make necessary arrangements to provide safe drinking water to the people of the city.
II. The government should educate people about the dangers of drinking contaminated water.

1. Only I follows
2. Only II follows
3. Either I or II follows
4. Neither I nor II follows
5. Both I and II follow

Explanation:

In this situation, the government should provide safe drinking water as well as spread awareness about the ill effects of drinking contaminated water.

3) Statement: Due to repeated crop failures, the villagers are facing financial problems and migrating to urban areas.
Courses of action;

I. The government should provide villagers alternate source of income so that their income is not affected by crop failure.
II. The government should provide jobs to the migrated villagers.

1. Only I follows
2. Only II follows
3. Either I or II follows
4. Neither I nor II follows
5. Both I and II follow

Explanation:

Migration to urban areas is not a solution, i.e., it will increase the burden on the city?s infrastructure. So, the villagers should have some alternate source of income so that they can continue earning even if their crop fails.

4) Statement: The sale of the product of a company has decreased significantly; the company is worried about the future of the product.
Courses of action;

I. The company should analyze the rival products available in the market.
II. The price of the product should be reduced, and its quality should be improved.

1. Only I follows
2. Only II follows
3. Either I or II follows
4. Neither I nor II follows
5. Both I and II follow

Explanation:

By analyzing the rival products, the company can understand why people are not buying its product. Lowering the price and improving the quality is not the right solution.
