Published : Monday, 08 September, 2014 11:17 AM  
 
MBA aspirants who are appearing in CMAT First Test being conducted from 25th September to 29th September 2014 may find following Logical Reasoning Question useful for practice:
 
Read the following argument and answer the question that follows:
 
Intravenous drug users who likely contracted the virus that causes AIDS from contaminated needles have accounted for more than 40 percent of the state’s more than 73,000 cases of people living with H.I.V. or AIDS. The New Jersey State Assembly made a sensible, life-saving decision this month when it approved a bill that allows pharmacies to sell a limited number of syringes to individuals without prescriptions. The bill will allow pharmacies to sell to adults as many as 10 syringes at a time without a prescription. The pharmacies would also be required to provide these customers with instructions for safe needle disposal and information on treatment programs.
 
Which of the following is a valid assumption?
 
(a) HIV infected addicts will benefit from the decision.
 
(b) A lot of addicts want to buy clean needles in bulk.
 
(c) Infected needles were the reason for some of the drug-addicts acquiring HIV infection.
 
(d) Giving addicts access to clean needles can reduce the spread of infection.
 
Answer with explanation 
 
Answer is ( d ).   The idea of providing needles in bulk has been proposed to check the spread of HIV infection. Hence, it can be safely assumed that provision of clean needles can check the spread of the infection.
