Testing Strength of Arguments

Question
6 out of 10
 

STATEMENT : Should the education at all levels be offered only in vernacular medium?

ARGUMENTS : I. Yes. This is the only way to enhance performance of the students.

II. No. This will severely affect acquiring knowledge for want of good text books in vernacular

medium.



A if only assumption I is implicit
B if only assumption II is implicit;
C if either I or II is implicit
D if neither I nor II is implicit
E if both I and II are implicit.
Ans. D

(i) Weak: It is an opinion as it is not “the only way” of enhancing performance.

(ii) Weak: The argument tends to predicts an undesirable outcome based on a fact which is incorrect. The knowledge will be affected as there is lack of books in vernacular (of region) medium, is a factually unacceptable argument.
