CAT 2018 – Slot -1 - Question 2 - In many cases time inconsistency is what prevents

Q. 2: Five sentences related to a topic are given below. Four of them can be put together to form a meaningful and coherent short paragraph. Identify the odd one out.
1. In many cases time inconsistency is what prevents our going from intention to action.
2. For people to continuously postpone getting their children immunized, they would need to be constantly fooled by themselves.
3. In the specific case of immunization, however, it is hard to believe that time inconsistency by itself would be sufficient to make people permanently postpone the decision if they were fully cognizant of its benefits.
4. In most cases, even a small cost of immunization was large enough to discourage most people.
5. Not only do they have to think that they prefer to spend time going to the camp next month rather than today, they also have to believe that they will indeed go next month.

Option 1 is incorrect as “violent crime” does not have an adverse impact on the environment.

Option 2 is also incorrect as “the rapid spread of diseases” does not directly impact upon the environment.

Option 3 is the correct answer. If the high density of cities leads to an increase in carbon dioxide and global warming then it would undermine the author’s assertion that cities are relatively environmentally benign.

Option 4 is also incorrect. Increased cost of utilities is not likely to have an adverse impact on the environment.

Hence, the correct answer is option 3.
