1 Answer

Toolbox:
  • 'or' is inclusive in the statement if both the components can occur simultaneously to make the statement correct.
  • 'or' is exclusive in the statement if only one of the the components occur at a time to make the statement correct.
The given statement is:
"To apply for a driving licence, you should have a ration card or a passport."
'or' in this statement is inclusive or.
Because to apply licence you need any one out of the two documents,
But you can have both ration card and passport.
