Which of the Following Statements Can Be a Possible Logical Corollary to the Given Paragraph? - Logical Reasoning

Question

MCQ

Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

The blind Argentinean librarian and writer Jorge Luis Borges imagined paradise to be a kind of library. At the turn of the century, a lot of us were concerned about the future of books with digital publishing becoming the norm of the day. But people continue to read books, whether as a bound copy or as e-books on their handheld readers or tabs. What has changed perhaps is the drive to read, or rather the motivation. Relevance of the subject matter now impacts the reading contours of the people.

Which of the following statements can be a possible logical corollary to the given paragraph?

Options

  • Readers have a herd mentality and their reading habits are mostly determined by the majoritarian socio-economic and political policies.

  • Digital publishing will drastically bring down cost because people will no longer have to buy books and carry them.

  • The concept of digital publishing will very soon become redundant and replaced by the traditional mode of publishing once again.

  • Social media determines the reading habit of people to a large extent.

Solution

Social media determines the reading habit of people to a large extent.

Explanation:

Since the passage talks about relevance, social media can be a possible factor because it is a phenomenon of the present day. There is nothing to suggest that the traditional publishing style will replace digital publishing.

Digital publishing will drastically bring down cost because people will no longer have to buy books and carry them is incorrect because there is nothing to suggest that the cost of books will come down. Furthermore, the reader will have to buy an appropriate device with the help of which s/he can read a book in digital form. Relevance of the subject matter doesn’t always refer to majoritarian policies. Even a marginalized or subaltern individual might find an issue relevant to his or her own existence. 

Hence,  Readers have a herd mentality and their reading habits are mostly determined by the majoritarian socioeconomic and political policies is negated.
