Q6. Statement: Should the tuition fees in all post-graduate courses be hiked considerably?  
Arguments: I. Yes. This will bring in some sense of seriousness among the students and will improve the quality.
II. No. This will force the meritorious poor students to stay away from post-graduate courses.
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. A hike in fees is no means to make the students more serious in studies. So, argument I is vague. However, with the increase in fees, poor meritorious students would not be able to afford post-graduate studies. So, argument II holds.
Q7. Statement: Should India create a huge oil reserve like some Western countries to face difficult situations in future?  
Arguments: I. No. There is no need to block huge amount of foreign exchange and keep the money idle.
II. Yes. This will help India withstand shocks of sudden rise in oil prices due to unforeseen circumstances.
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Oil, being an essential commodity, our country must keep it in reserve. So, argument I is vague, while argument II holds as it provides a substantial reason for the same.
Q8. Statement: Should there be a cap on maximum number of contestants for parliamentary elections in any constituency?  
Arguments: I. Yes. This will make the parliamentary elections more meaningful as the voters can make a considered judgment for casting their vote.
II. No. In a democracy any person fulfilling the eligibility criteria can contest parliamentary elections and there should be no restrictions.
S8. Ans.(e)
Sol. Clearly, if there were less candidates, the voters would find it easy to make a choice. So, argument I holds. Also, every person satisfying the conditions laid down by the Constitution must be given an opportunity and should not be denied the same just to cut down the number of candidates. So, argument II also holds strong.
