REASONING THE REASON

LEGAL REASONING

1. Principle: If any person intentionally contaminates any source of public water in such a way that it becomes non-consumable, he shall be punished.

Factual Situation: Rahul owns a chemical factory in Delhi. During the process of making chemicals the factory drains out a lot of sewage. In course of time the chemicals contained in the sewage contaminated the source of underground water.

Decision:

(a) Rahul has committed offence because such contamination is due to working of his employees
(b) Rahul has committed an offence because his factory is liable for contaminating the ground water, and he owns the factory
(c) Rahul has not committed an offence
(d) None of the above

The answer is (b).

2. Principle: If any person enters into wagering or betting agreements, such agreements would be illegal and cannot be given effect for enforcing obligations.

Factual Situation: Amit enters into an agreement with Vinit that if he pays Amit a premium of Rs. 500 per annum and Vinit's house is devastated by fire within one year of entering into agreement, Amit shall make good the loss suffered by Vinit.

Decision:

(a) The agreement entered into between Amit and Vinit is a wagering agreement and even if Vinit's house is devastated by fire he cannot claim price of the house against Amit
(b) The agreement entered into between Amit and Vinit is a valid contract and can be enforced if Vinit's house is devastated by fire within one year of entering this agreement
(c) Amit and Vinit are betting thus this agreement is not a contract
(d) None of the above

The answer is (b).

3. Principle: A person is said to cause an effect "voluntarily" whereby he intended to cause it or by means of which, at the time of employing those means, he knew or had reason to believe, to be likely to cause it.

Factual Situation: A sets fire, by night, to an inhabited house in a large town, for the purpose of facilitating a robbery and this causes death of a person. A pleaded that he had intended the robbery but not the cause of death and became sorry for the death caused by his act.

Decision:

(a) A is liable for causing the death voluntarily though he has not intended to cause death of any one, because he had set fire in an inhabited house not in an abandoned house and it is quite natural that in such house people must be there during night
(b) A is not liable because he has not intended the murder of any one only the robbery
(c) A is not responsible for murder because he has not killed any one by his own hands
(d) None of the above

The answer is (a).

Reasons ( R):

(1) Justice was not reaching the downtrodden and the poor in the past.

(2) Supreme Court has the responsibility of imparting justice to those who are unable to get it due to one reason or the other.

(a) Both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
(b) Both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A
(c) A is true but R is false
(d) A is false but R is true

The answer is (b).
