Which of the Following Cannot Be Inferred from the Passage? - Logical Reasoning

Question

MCQ

Direction : Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

We found in both India and Pakistan that Partition was difficult to confront and talk about. In order to talk about it, we would have to acknowledge that both sides were equally guilty, in case you can use that word. For instance, it wasn’t like the Holocaust, where you had the Jews and the Nazis. Of course, you had a range of ordinary people who allowed the violence against the Jews or benefited from it – like companies that used concentration camp labour. Unlike the Holocaust, in Partition, both sides were guilty of violence. Both sides were aggressors and victims. Often, there were histories of violence within families, which they silenced. There could have been history of complicity in the violence they subjected their own women to. Or you might have known about somebody who was attacked, but you were too helpless to stop it – and you, therefore, let that history go. Or you might have participated in violence yourself.

Which of the following cannot be inferred from the passage? 

Options

  • In order to talk about history, one needs to acknowledge the mistakes they have made.

  • The concept of one side being a victim and the other being an assailant does not hold true for Partition.

  • Violence within one’s own family contributed to the difficulty in confrontation.

  • One can draw clear parallels between the Holocaust and the Partition in terms of the mass killings that took place and in terms of the violence inflicted on women.

Solution

One can draw clear parallels between the Holocaust and the Partition in terms of the mass killings that took place and in terms of the violence inflicted on women.

Explanation:

In order to talk about history, one needs to acknowledge the mistakes they have made, the concept of one side being a victim and the other being an assailant does not hold true for Partition and violence within one’s own family contributed to the difficulty in confrontation are clear inferences.

Although one can draw clear parallels between the Holocaust and the Partition in terms of the mass killings that took place and in terms of the violence inflicted on women is a universal inference, one simply cannot infer it in the light of the passage. 

Thus, the correct answer is one can draw clear parallels between the Holocaust and the Partition in terms of the mass killings that took place and in terms of the violence inflicted on women.
