What 4th Question answer is D and not E?


Official Explanation


4. According to the information in the passage, the impressions of the fingerprints can be obtained from all of the following, EXCEPT:

Difficulty Level: 700

Explanation

(A) Inferred from the third paragraph.

(B) Inferred from the third paragraph.

(C) Inferred from the third paragraph.

(D) Towards the end of the third paragraph, wax is mentioned as one of the probable mediums or backgrounds on which one can take fngerprints and not the substance that actually needs to be applied on the fingers. Hence, (D) is the correct answer.

(E) Inferred from the third paragraph by the use of ‘saline substance emitted from the glands’.

The correct answer is D.

­OE

The passage starts by discussing the importance of fngerprints in criminal investigation, and then goes on to explain their importance in civil cases as well. It fnally concludes by discussing the various modes of fngerprint collection. (E) summarises all of this best and is the correct answer.

­A is far too narrow. The passage isn't focused solely on why we need to collect fingerprints. In fact, it doesn't tell us that at all. It explains why it is USEFUL to collect fingerprints, but useful and necessary are not the same thing. In any case, the final paragraph is purely explanatory and doesn't get in to the usefulness/necessity of prints at all. The right answer should cover the entire scope of the passage, and E does that effectively.
