Testing Strength of Arguments

Question
4 out of 10
 

STATEMENT : Should there be no place of interview in selection?

ARGUMENTS : I. Yes. It is very subjective in assessment.

II. No. It is the only instrument to judge candidates’ motives and personality.



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 without justification. On the other hand, the interviews are taken to test the subjective qualities of a candidate. It would be irrelevant to remove interviews based on an argument which is totally opposite to its cause.

(ii) Weak: It is not the “only” instrument to judge candidate’s motives and personality. The word “only” makes the argument very weak.
