A) Both a and b follows B) Only c follows
C) Only a follows D) Both b and c follows

Courses of action:
a. The evaluation system of XII Std. terminal examination should be made more tough so that fewer students pass the examination.
b. The Government should encourage the private sector to open new colleges by providing them land at cheaper rate.
c. The rich people should be asked to send their wards to foreign countries for higher studies enabling the needy students to get admission in colleges within the country.

A) only a and b follows B) Only c follows
C) Only b follows D) All a, b & c follows
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Only b follows

Explanation:

Clearly, reducing the number of aspirants for admission to colleges or sending the students of well-to-do families to foreign countries for higher studies, is no proper solution. So, both I and III do not follow. The right solution is to increase the number of colleges so as t accommodate the increasing number of admission-seekers. So, only II follows.
