The first action is advisable because alternative arrangements to ensure adequate supply of foodgrains will reduce the inconvenience of the people. The second course of action is not advisable as it is an extreme action, and we also do not know the reason of the strike.

Thus, only I follows

=> Ans – (A)

Course of action I is not advisable because it will be an extreme step and because the non-infected persons should not be debarred from visiting India.
Course of action II is advisable because it will be helpful to tackle the situation and it is a much more proper and rational way to set up detection centres.

Thus, only II follows.

=> Ans – (B)

The first action is advisable as it will reduce the problem to some extent by increasing the capacity in the trains.
The second action is not advisable because it is ridiculous to give such advice to people and people cannot be deprived of going to a certain destination merely for lack of berths. Instead it is the duty of the railway authority to accommodate all the bookings by all means.

Thus, only I follows

=> Ans – (A)

The first course of action definitely follows as the police should keep a tighter vigil in the city so that it may not occur in the future.
The second action is not advisable as the persons should not be allowed to leave without punishment.

Thus, only I follows.

=> Ans – (A)

The statement indicates that the number of patients with water-borne diseases are increasing, so the government should take steps to create awareness among general public about importance of clean water. Also, the hospitals should have the facilities to treat and handle such number of patients.

Thus, both I and II follow.

=> Ans – (E)

The first course of action definitely follows to avoid such accidents in the future.
The driver should not be immediately arrested as it is unclear whether it was driver’s fault or because of bad condition of the bridge.

Thus, only I follows.

=> Ans – (A)

Both the actions mean the same thing, as it is the government’s duty to provide relief material and food for the flood victims.

Thus, both I and II follow.
