    Study the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below:
    The Government has constituted a Group of Ministers (GoM) on 15th January, 2019 to examine the existing legal and institutional frameworks for dealing with matters of sexual harassment of women at the workplace. The Group of Ministers was constituted in October 2018 after the "“Me Too"” campaign. The group was reconstituted under the Home Minster in July 2019. The GoM will recommend actions required for effective implementation of the existing provisions, as well as for strengthening the existing legal and institutional frameworks for addressing issues related to sexual harassment at workplace. The Group of Ministers has been constituted in view of the felt need for broader consultation on this issue, from the point of view of developing appropriate recommendations and laying down a comprehensive plan of action and for ensuring its time bound implementation. There have been several women harassment cases registered in several places of India. But an incident like Me Too instigates such immediate and strict actions to be taken by the Government as well as awareness from the public.
    What is the negative inference behind Government’s immediate action of framing GoM for addressing sexual harassment at workplace?

    A) Government is not completely aware of increased sexual harassment at workplaces

    B) Government is under the impression that there are already strong existing laws

    C) Government lacked in implementing such laws even it was strongly legislated

    D) Government was not comprehensive enough to be pro-active in such cases

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    Rationale: (d) Reasoning type: Comparative Reasoning\[\to \]comparing one thing against another Focus of the question: Negative inference\[\to \]Finding truth about negative laggings of the actions Relationship analogy: Performer and action Analogies\[\to \]It is a very straightforward analogy type which is based on taking two sets of performers and their corresponding actions The focus of the question is on the proactive behavior of the Government in the country, where the administrators could have been more comprehensive enough to implement or strengthen the existing laws and provisions with respect to sexual harassment at work places. It can be justified on the ground that sexual harassment cases are being registered in several years, previously and these cases could have been the instigators for such government actions.
