Statement and Course of Action

The course of action you choose should lessen the problem or improve the situation that was created by the problem. As a result, the course of action needs to be practical and applied in day to day life. It should also be feasible. When the problem given to you is simple than the course of action should also be simple. A complex approach to this kind of problems should be taken as this will increase the problem rather than solve it.

Solved Examples

Q. Statement: A recent study shows that children below five years of age in the cities of the developing countries die mainly from polio and diarrhea problems.

The course of action:

1. The government of the developing countries should take adequate measures to improve the hygiene conditions.
2. Children that are under five years of age in the cities of the developing countries should be kept under constant medication.

Both of this scenarios seems to be the right answer and both should be followed. But here you need to find the best practical option you can. Thus the solutions should be doable. In the above options, option 1 can be adopted because when the government takes necessary measures that it will be possible to fight the diseases, while the second option seems a bit of stretch. In option 2 it is not possible to keep an eye on every child and thus only option 1 should be our course of action. Thus, the correct answer is A.

Q. Statement: Youngsters are often seen at staring the obscene posters.

The course of action:

1. Children should be punished and penalized if they are found doing the following act.
2. Any display of such material should be banned.

In the above question when you think logically, punishing and penalizing is not a judicial way to deal with the children. It does not allow you to punish the children. And therefore the option 1 is not a correct course of action. Meanwhile, the second option states that a complete ban must be put on the use of such posters. This completely solves the above problem and is also the correct course of action which is stated in option 2.
