The first thing to do when faced with a "method of reasoning" question is to simplify the language and then find a similar example in real life.
Lets start with it and break down the language in simpler using a real life example.
ORIGINAL :-Seven countries signed a treaty binding each of them to perform specified actions on a certain fixed date, SIMPLIFIED :-Seven countries have to do a similar action on one fixed date/day.EXAMPLE :- Seven persons have to eat burger on valentine's day
ORIGINAL :-With the actions of each......SIMPLIFIED :-The action of any one country.....SIMPLIFIED :-A person will start eating burger.......
ORIGINAL :- conditional on simultaneous action taken by the other countries.SIMPLIFIED :- depends on all other country starting the action TOGETHER.SIMPLIFIED :- only when six person will start eating the burger at the same moment.
ORIGINAL :-Each country was also to notify the six other countries when it had completed its action. SIMPLIFIED :-Every single country will also tell rest of the six countries that it has finished the action.SIMPLIFIED :-Every person will shout loudly :- I finished the burger.
So this question becomes:-Seven persons have to eat burger on valentine's day. A person will start eating burger only when six person will start eating the burger at the same moment. Each person after eating the burger then will shout loudly :- I finished the burger.
The weird condition that all persons have to start eating the burger simultaneously at the exact same time can result in:-
Now as you can see.
1) There is a condition that tells WHAT action has to be performed simultaneously. Eat burger
2)There is a condition that tells HOW the action has to be performed. Eat simultaneously
3) There is a condition that WHAT to do after the action is completed. Shout after eating burger
4) But there is no condition WHEN to begin the action.??? NOT GIVEN IN THE QUESTION STEM
Therefore it is possible that all 7 people are holding the burger, ready to eat but cannot eat it because no one is sure when the other six person are going to start eating. Since the condition say that they all to start eating at the same exact moment, there is a chance of lack of coordination resulting from hesitation. every person is waiting for other six to start. Hence no one can start on its own. And since no can start, the hamburger are not being eaten.[/b]
Imagine this conversation
YOU :- "Hey John ! why are you not eating that juicy burger?",
JOHN:- "Because the other six have not started " .
YOU :- "Don't wait for others. you eat it first" .
JOHN:-"I cannot eat it first. The condition states that we all have to eat it at the same time"
YOU:- WTF !!! WHAT A SILLY EXCUSE
(C) EACH PERSON WILL HAVE A VALID REASON/EXCUSE FOR NOT EATING THE BURGER
(C) Each country might have a well-founded excuse, based on the provision, for its own lack of compliance.
THEREFORE THE ANSWER IS C
(A) the compliance date was subject to postponement, according to the terms of the treaty.
(B) one of the countries might not be required to make any changes or take any steps in order to comply with the treaty, whereas all the other countries are so required.
(C) each country might have a well-founded excuse, based on the provision, for its own lack of compliance.
EACH PERSON WILL HAVE A VALID REASON FOR NOT EATING THE BURGER
(D) the treaty specified that the signal for one of the countries to initiate action was notification by the other countries that they had completed action.
(E) there was ambiguity with respect to the date after which all actions contemplated in the treaty are to be compete.
Posting an answer without an explanation is "GOD COMPLEX". The world doesn't need any more gods. Please explain you answers properly.
