Your Answer
D

II, III, and IV only


Solution

The correct option is B

I and IV only


The author has described some of the steps taken by the Gujarat government to control the menace of power theft. You have to identify those possible steps or actions not mentioned by the author. As for (I), the author has not mentioned any ad campaign. The author has mentioned (II) in a different manner. I have used the word coercion because that is how it works in India. Sometimes when an executive detects wrongdoing, then if the alleged perpetrator is influential he brings political pressure. The political leader who takes up the matter normally warns the executive to stand off or face consequence.

The author has mentioned about separate police stations being made functional for power theft. This implies that any complaint about power theft would be registered in the special police station and thus he complaint would get Information Report or FIR. Hence , (III) is implied by the author’s narrative.

The author has not mentioned about deployment of student cadets for theft detection. Hence (b).
