Directions: The critical reasoning question is based on a short argument, a set of arguments, or a plan of action. For each question, select the best answer of the choices given and explain why the chosen answer is the right fit.

During an ongoing conversation between Tusky and Sally, Tusky read through an article, “Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) was the well-known President of the United States who was confined to a wheelchair. Usually, people who have to depend on a wheelchair to move around find it difficult to be socially active. But despite his disability, he was able to carry out his presidential duties.”

To this Sally replied, “He was a great man in that he did not live a life of excuses, but rather did whatever he felt had to be done. He was willing to make every effort to overcome his disability. Those, who even from the depths of adversity are able to reach heights that ordinary people would never aspire to, all have something in common.”

What could be the common attribute of the people who faced adversities according to Sally?


1. They all aspire to reach greater heights than ordinary people
2. They have high self-esteem and do not seek other people’s help
3. They never bemoan their fate and accept it
4. They understand all the important lessons in life

Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : They never bemoan their fate and accept it

Statement 1 mentions “all”. It is not necessarily true that all people who face adversity will reach great heights. Hence, incorrect.

Statement 2 is also not correct because it may not be true is every case.

Statement 4 also gets ruled out because it is not possible that they’ll learn “ALL” the lessons in life.

Statement 3 is correct as it correctly sums up the reply given by Sally about Franklin D. Roosevelt. It states how such people never accept and bemoan over their fate.
Hence, option 3 is the correct answer.
