Direction (Q. 2 - 5) : Below is given a passage followed by several possible inferences which can be drawn from the facts stated in the passage. You have to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.

Apart from the relentless heat in central and northern India, delayed monsoons over a large area of the country his year will spell disaster for the economy. For some regions like Rajasthan and Orissa, a drought-like situation has srevailed for some time and rainfall has also been deficient in several other states for the last two years. Out of the 424 neteorological districts, 142 received deficient rains in 2009, ind due to administrative problems food was not available in •emote areas. However, it is hoped, that since there is plenty of foodgrains in the government godowns, rural India will lot witness the tragic cycle of starvation deaths this year. Delayed or failed monsoon will lead to a much lower demand from farmers for industrial and consumer goods next year as they will experience a sharp drop in their incomes. The boost to industrial demand that was coming from agriculture since last year will also be arrested. Even though the central and state governments are making some contingency plans and asking farmers to sow shorter-duration crops requiring less water, their abject dependence on monsoons remains a puzzle.

For the economy there will be a lagged impact.

A.    if the inference is definitely true, ie it properly follows from the statement of facts given. B.    if the inference is probably true though not definitely true in the light of the facts given.
C.    if the data are inadequate, ie from the facts given you cannot say whether the inference is likely to be true or false. D.    if the inference is probably false though not definitely false in the light of the facts given.
