XAT 2020 Question 28


Read the situation below and answer the 3 associated questions:
Vindhya, Shabnam and Amala are interning at a software organization as part of the requirement of their B-school curriculum.
The organization has allotted each of them a project based on their area of specialization. In the first meeting with the HR head, they are informed of a PPO possibility (pre-placement offer, i.e., an offer to join the company after their MBA), based on their performance. All of them are eager to convert their internship into a job offer.
Each of them is assigned a mentor who evaluates the intern's performance along with the HR head.

Question 28

Vindhya’s project is about understanding employee perception regarding the organization’s HR policies. Against her own instinct, she is suggested by her mentor to interview only the good performers identified by his office because poor performers, he believes, usually crib against the policies.

Which of the following courses of action will BEST enable Vindhya to provide the organization with a complete picture?


Since Vindhya wants to convey the complete picture to the organisation, option A can be rejected.

Option B can also be dismissed as separating the data will not provide an accurate picture of the situation.

Options C and D may lead to some tension among the HR department and Vindhya and may cost her the PPO.

Option E is the best option as Vindhya is still following her mentor's suggestions and also getting the whole information.

Hence, the answer is option E.
