MCQ

Till Nineties, clearly the policy of the government was guided by the philosophy of socialism. Under its influence, the government tried to exercise control in every field. But today we hear about disinvestment and privatization. Hence there is a clear shift from socialistic principles. 

Which one of the following assertions, if true, contradicts the passage mentioned above?

Options

  • That government is the best government which governs least

  • Only enterprise in a free society contributes to the real progress

  • Not withstanding the alleged merits of laissez-faire implicit in the passage, lack of effective control by the state results in the exploitation of many by a few

  • The state is guilty of the dereliction of duty

Solution

The state is guilty of the dereliction of duty

Explanation:

Here, the speaker equates exercising control with socialist influence. Disinvestment and privatization shows less of control. Speaker reasons out that it is a shift from socialistic principles. However, if we show that the same phenomenon (loss of control) comes due to the laxity  of the government, we can contradict the speaker's argument. So, 'The state is guilty of the dereliction of duty' is correct answer.
