Direction: In each question below is given a statement followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true, then consider the two conclusions together and decide which of them logically follows beyond a reasonable doubt from the information given in the statement. Give answer

  1. Statement:
    Residues of extremely harmful pesticides have been found in popular brands of bottled water and this is a major jolt for the water industry, which is worth Rs 1000 crore annually and which is growing at 40 per cent as more and more Indians look for safe drinking.
    Conclusions :
    I. The presence of pesticides in bottled water has huge implications for public health.
    II. Drinking water is harmful for human beings.
    1. if only conclusion I follows
    2. if only conclusion II follows
    3. if either I or II follows
    4. if neither I nor II follows, and
    5. if both I and II follow
Correct Option: A

I follows. That is why it is a jolt to the water industry. The presence of pesticides undermines the very purpose of ''safe drinking''. II does not follow because the statement talks only about ''bottled water'', not drinking water in general.
