Statements: Women's organisations in India have welcomed the amendment of the Industrial Employment Rules 1946 to curb sexual harassment at the work place.




I.        Sexual harassment of women at work place is more prevalent in India as compared to other developed countries.

II.        Many organisations in India will stop recruiting women to avoid such problems.

A. Only conclusion I follows.
B. Only conclusion II follows.
C. Either I or II follows.
D. Neither I nor II follows.
E. Both I and II follow.

Answer: Option D


The fact that a certain rule has been more welcomed in a certain country does not imply that the problem is more prevalent there. So, I does not follow. Also, the amendment seeks to discourage only sexual harassment of women and shall in no way discourage employment of women. So, II also does not follow.
