GATE | GATE-CS-2014-(Set-3) | Question 6

A dance programme is scheduled for 10.00 a.m. Some students are participating in the programme and they need to come an hour earlier than the start of the event. These students should be accompanied by a parent. Other students and parents should come in time for the programme. The instruction you think that is appropriate for this is
(A) Students should come at 9.00 a.m. and parents should come at 10.00 a.m.
(B) Participating students should come at 9.00 a.m. accompanied by a parent, and other parents and students should come by 10.00 a.m.
(C) Students who are not participating should come by 10.00 a.m. and they should not bring their parents. Participating students should come at 9.00 a.m.
(D) Participating students should come before 9.00 a.m. Parents who accompany them should come at 9.00 a.m. All others should come at 10.00 a.m.


Answer: (B)

Explanation:

  • A is not the appropriate instruction as only the participating students and their parents have to come at 9.00 a.m. and other students along with their parents have to come at 10.00 a.m., while the statement in A says that all students should come at 9.00 a.m. and all the parents should come at 10.00 a.m.
  • B is the appropriate instruction and covers all the aspects of the information to be conveyed.
  • C is not the appropriate instruction as the non participating students have to come at 10.00 a.m. with their parents, while the statement in B says that these students have to come without their parents.
  • D is not the appropriate instruction as it states that the participating students have to come before 9.00 a.m. whereas they have to come at 9.00 a.m.

So B is Correct option.
