Testing Strength of Arguments

Question
8 out of 10
 

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.
Ans. D

(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.
