Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 1

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should the vehicle of anyone driving without a licence be impounded?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. Driving without a licence is in violation of law.
II. No. Sometimes people hesitate to keep the original licence with them at all times due to the fear of misplacing them.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 1

Impounding the vehicle would act as a sufficient deterrent, and is not an extreme measure, as some might think. Thus, I hold strong. The fear of losing the licence is no excuse for not keeping such a vital identification document at all times, especially while driving a vehicle. Thus, II is weak.

Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 2

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should cricket be included in the Olympics?
Arguments:
I. Yes. It is hugely popular in countries like India and England.
II. No. On the whole, only a handful of countries have prominent cricket teams, whereas Olympics require participation from most of the countries of the World.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 2

A particular sport being hugely popular in a few countries is no reason for its inclusion in the Olympics which invites participation from almost all the countries. Thus, I is weak. If Cricket is played seriously by only a handful of countries, it’ll not generate interest as generated by other games of the Olympics. Thus, II is holds strong.

Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 3

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should ‘Politics’ be taught in schools?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. An informed electorate is the key to a strong democracy.
II. No. Politics and education should not be mixed as it will affect both adversely.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 3

Educating the school going children on politics will definitely acquaint them with the intricacies and modalities of the same and will help them in making an informed decision while casting their vote. Thus, I hold strong. II is vague and does not give any argument.

Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 4

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should ‘Personal Finance’ be taught in schools?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. It will equip the school students with knowledge about investing, savings etc and help them in making informed decisions when they’re earning.
II. No. School students should be kept away from money matters as it can have a negative impact on them.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 4

I is self-explanatory and is a strong argument. II does not show how and why money matters will have a negative impact on the school going students. Thus, II is a weak argument.

Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 5

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should Railways levy a small modernization surcharge on the passengers?

I. Yes. It was greatly help the railways in generating the required funds for modernizing various facilities provided by them.
II. No. It will greatly imbalance the budget of an average household.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 5

I is strong as the surcharge will definitely help the railways in generating funds for the much needed modernization of the railways. On the other hand, such a minor surcharge is highly unlikely to greatly imbalance the budget of an average household. Thus, II is a weak argument.

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should corporal punishment be banned in schools?
Arguments: 
I. No. Teachers as responsible adults can be trusted with using the punishment only as a last resort, and on a case-to-case basis.
II. Yes. Hitting a student is only an easy way out to create an image of trying to change the student, whereas there are better options available for fundamentally changing the behaviour of the student.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 6

If teachers as responsible adults were indeed to be blindly trusted, there was no actual need for such a debate. But experience show that many a times such punishment is inflicted in totally inappropriate and inapt situations. Thus, I is weak. II is self-explanatory and is a strong argument.

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement: 
Should Census be done more often?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. Lot of people migrate from one place to another quite frequently and the census results might be obsolete within a year.
II. No. There are huge costs associated with carrying out the census and increasing its frequency might put unnecessary burden on the exchequer.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 7

The migration of even a large number of people, except in exceptional situations, is unlikely to make the census, which takes into account the whole population of a particular place, obsolete within a year. Thus, I is weak. II rightly points out the problem with carrying out census more frequently, the problem of costs of such operations. Thus, II holds strong.

Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 8

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement:
Should the Government introduce Gross Happiness Index on the lines of that introduced in Bhutan?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. It will greatly help India in becoming a prosperous nation.
II. No. Bhutan has not gone anywhere even after introducing GHI over four decades ago.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 8

Just introducing Gross Happiness Index (GHI) is highly unlikely to greatly help India in becoming a prosperous nation. Thus, I is a weak argument. II is vague and unclear on the point of GHI. Thus, even II is a weak argument.

Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 9

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument. 
Statement: 
Should there be restrictions on free media?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. Sometimes restrictions are needed to control free media.
II. No. It’s the fourth pillar of our democracy.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 9

I doesn’t provide any argument, but merely restate the Statement differently. Thus, I is weak. Just because the media is the fourth pillar of democracy doesn’t mean that it should operate without legitimate and rightful restrictions on it. Thus, II is also weak.

Statement: 
Should young people move away from home when they’ve crossed the age of 18?
Arguments: 
I. Yes. It greatly helps them in standing on their own feet and becoming independent.
II. No. Their parents need their support.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Arguments - Question 10

I is self-explanatory and is strong. Moving out and working and earning on your own definitely helps a person in becoming independent. II is vague and does not give any concrete reason. Thus, II is a weak argument.
