Q. Statement: Interview panel may select a student who does not possess the desired abilities nor any value.

Conclusion.
1 The inclusion of experts in interview panel does not ensure that the candidates will be selected properly.
2. Interview procedure of admission does have some limitations.

The question states that a candidate who does not have prerequisite skills may also get selected. This clearly means that even though there are experts in the interview panel the selection is not proper. Further, it also indicates that there are limitations for the interview panel. Thus both the conclusions are correct. So, the correct answer is D.

Statements and conclusion

Q. Statement: In India, there should be more and more emphasis given to the agricultural engineering and technological fields instead of pure and basic science.

Conclusion
1. Sufficient development has been achieved in India in the field of basic and pure science.
2. The production industry in India was neglected in the past.

The statement given in the question states that the emphasis should be laid more on the agricultural and technological field instead of basic and pure science. But there is no mention of the achievements of science. So, it cannot be clearly said whether the achievement in science is sufficient or not. Similarly, there is no mention of production sector and thus it cannot be stated whether it was neglected or not. So, neither statements can be concluded and thus the correct answer is C.

Examples Based on More than Two Conclusions

Find the conclusion which follows the statements given in the question.

Q. Statement: It was informed in a Rajya Sabha today that the vehicles contribute to almost 60 % of the total pollution level in Delhi.

Conclusions
A. The problem of pollution is very high on the work list.
B. The court has ordered to identify the main source of pollution.
C. This matter was discussed in the Lok Sabha as well.
D. It was noted that in other cities also the pollution due to vehicles was at the same percentage level.
E. Not many towns in India faces the problem of pollution.

The best way to solve this type of questions is to go through all the options one by one and negate them. This will make it easier for you to find the answer.

For option 5, it is nowhere mentioned in the statement about the pollution in other cities. Similarly, option 4 can be negated as because whatever the pollution might be in other cities it does not affect the pollution in Delhi. Option 3 is not a necessary conclusion because whether the matter was discussed first or last in Lok Sabha it does not necessarily mean that it will be informed in Rajya Sabha.

Option 2 is also vague because it does not necessarily talk about the reason for the information. And even though if the court has ordered to identify the source there is no need to discuss it in Rajya Sabha. Thus, the only option left is 1 and it can be an inferential conclusion because if the problem is high on the work list than it will be immediately informed once the people have all the data. So, the correct answer is A.
