"Popular Hindi fiction, despite - or perhaps because of - its wide reach, often does not appear in our cinema. As ideals that viewers are meant to look up to rather identify with, Hindi film protagonists usually read books of aspirational value: textbook, English books, or high-value literature."

Which one of the following CANNOT be inferred from the paragraph above?

  1. Though popular Hindi fiction has wide reach, it often does not appear in the movies
  2. Protagonists in Hindi movies, being ideals for viewers, read only books of aspirational value
  3. Textbooks, English books or high literature have  aspirational value, but not popular Hindi fiction
  4. People do not look up to writers of textbook, English books or high-value literature

Best answer
  • Popular Hindi fiction, despite – or perhaps because of – its wide reach, often does not appear in our cinema. -- makes option A true
  • As ideals that viewers are meant to look up to rather identify with, Hindi film protagonists usually read books of aspirational value: -- can infer option B but "usually" does not imply "only". 
  • Hindi film protagonists usually read books of aspirational value: textbook, English books, or high-value literature -- makes option C true
  • As ideals that viewers are meant to look up to rather identify with, Hindi film protagonists usually read books of aspirational value: textbook, English books, or high-value literature -- this is contradictory to option D. 

So, options D and B cannot be inferred but D is a better pick as its negation can be inferred. 

Official answer: D, B
