Testing Strength of Arguments
STATEMENT : Should there be reservation of seats and posts on communal basis?
ARGUMENTS : I. Yes. It will check most of the inter-communal biases.
II. No. Ours is a secular state.
|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.|
(i) Weak: It is an opinion, as how the inter communal biases would be checked has not been mentioned, i.e. no supporting fact.
(ii) Weak: Communal basis, i.e. on the basis of caste, status, religion, region (any one of the above). Just because ours is a secular (freedom of religion) state, reservation on all the basis cannot be controlled or abolished.
