Which of the following can be a possible cause for the above effect?

A. The price of gold ornaments has increased significantly.

B. The price of platinum ornaments decrease significantly.

C. The difference in the prices of gold and platinum ornament became very narrow and wearing platinum ornaments has become a fashion now.

D. Platinum is a very costly metal.

Answer: Option C


We need to find a possible reason for people shifting from gold ornaments to platinum ornaments. Choice (a) and (b) talk about prices of gold and platinum ornaments individually, but does not make any comparison between their prices.

Choice (c) states that the prices of gold and platinum ornaments is almost equal and wearing platinum ornaments is more fashionable than wearing gold ornaments. This is a possible reason why people prefer platinum ornaments to those of gold.

5. It may prudent to bear with a small harm for a greater benefit. Problem arises when the harm has the power to endanger future generations. Research has consistently shown that frequent exposure X-rays can cause cells in human body to be destroyed or mutated, apart from this it can cause damage to DNA cell structure, a bane that could be passed down for generations. Doctors, unmindful of such consequences, subject the patients to exposure to X-rays, even in the cases in which it can be avoided.

A. Doctors should not recommend X-ray treatment unless it is unavoidable.

B. Manufacturers should provide remote controls for X-ray machines so that doctors can operate it from a distance.

C. Manufacturers should incorporate such features in their machines to regulate radiation to the patients.

D. Patients should not go to the hospitals which use X-rays in the treatment of patient

Answer: Option A


The courses of action suggested in (D) leads to new problems because usages of X-rays becomes essential in some causes.

Use of remote control can only save the operator from exposure to X-rays but not to the patients. Hence, (B) is not a proper course of action. Choice (C) is based on an assumption that X-ray radiation is not regulated. Hence, (C) does not follow. Choice (D), does not yield ant positive result as there will not be any cure for some diseases without X-ray radiation. Hence (D) does not follow. Here the problem is that doctors are recommending X-ray treatment where there is no need. Hence, they should think twice before recommending. Hence, (A) is a proper course of action.
