How can reserves be liabilities only?...In fact, it can be Asset if used for giving loans and liabilities for OMO operations? So, at first instance, how can one decide what to chose if option contains "RBI reserves"?

Saurabh...Reserves are liabilities. But until they are used to give loan. Once they are loaned out it becomes asset. So Ur comment itself has answer hidden, isn't it? See u go to bank and keep money, it's banks reserve, and bank will pay u interest. So it's Ur asset as it generates income for u and Banks Liability as it pays u interest on it.
