Solution :-

The defensive action discussed by the scientists was to live in underground bunkers. The offensive action was to marginally deflect
Comet Dutta from its path by giving it a push. This could be done by placing nuclear payload in a spaceship, sending it to intercept the approaching comet and detonating it by remote control.
