Directions (11-13) : Each of the following questions consists of a statement followed by two arguments I and II. Give answer

Q11. Statement : Should officers accepting bribe be punished?

Arguments :
I. No. Certain circumstances may have compelled them to take bribe.
II. Yes. They should do the job they are entrusted with, honestly.
if only argument I is strong
if only argument II is strong
if either I or II is strong
if neither I nor II is strong
if both I and II are strong.
Solution:
Clearly, officers are paid duly for the jobs they do. So, they must do it honestly. Thus, argument II alone holds.

Q12. Statement : Should India become a permanent member of UN’s Security Council?
Arguments :
I. Yes. India has emerged as a country which loves peace and amity.
II. No. Let us first solve problems of our own people like poverty, malnutrition.
if only argument I is strong
if only argument II is strong
if either I or II is strong
if neither I nor II is strong
if both I and II are strong.
Solution:
A peace – loving nation like India can well join an international forum which seeks to bring different nations on friendly terms with each other. So, argument I holds strong. Argument II highlights a different aspect. The internal problems of a nation should not debar it from strengthening international ties. So, argument II is vague.

Q13. Statement : Should the persons below the age of 18 years be allowed to join armed forces?
Arguments :
I. No. Persons below the age of 18 do not attain both physical and mental maturity to shoulder such burden.
II. Yes, this can makes our army more powerful.
if only argument I is strong
if only argument II is strong
if either I or II is strong
if neither I nor II is strong
if both I and II are strong.

The armed forces must consist of physically strong and mentally mature individuals to take care of defence properly. So, argument I holds strong. Clearly, argument II holds no relevance.
