Question
3 out of 10
 

STATEMENT : Should there be reservation in Government jobs for candidates from single child family?

ARGUMENTS : I. No. This is not advisable as the jobs should be offered to only deserving candidates without any
reservation for a particular group.

II. Yes. This will help reduce the growing population in India as the parents will be encouraged to
adopt single child norm.



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. A

(i) Strong: It is a generally accepted truth that jobs should be offered to only deserving students.

(ii) Weak: Giving jobs to single child families is a wrong course of action. We cannot give jobs based on such a scenario. Any wrong course of action cannot be a strong argument.
