b. Only II follows
c. Both I and II follow
d. Neither I nor II follows
e. Either I or II follows

ANSWER: Both I and II follow
The police should find out the holes in existing security arrangements and cover them to establish law and order and thus prevent any such criminal activities in the forthcoming festivals.
