Directions (19-20): Each question given below consists of a statement, followed by three or four arguments numbered I, II, III and IV. You have to decide which of the arguments is/are ‘strong’ argument(s) and which is/are ‘weak’ argument(s) and accordingly choose your answer from the alternatives given below each question.

Q19. Statement: Should
India go in for computerization in all possible sectors?

Arguments:
I. Yes. It will bring efficiency and accuracy in the work.
II. No. It will be an injustice to the monumental human
resources which are at present underutilized.
III. No. Computerization demands a lot of money. We should not
waste money on it.
IV. Yes. When advanced countries are introducing computers in
every field, how can India afford to lag behind?
Only I is strong
Only I and II are strong
Only I and III are strong
Only II and III are strong
All are strong
Solution:
Clearly, the need of today is to put to better use the
underutilized human resources. Computers with better and speedy efficiency can
accomplish this. So, argument I holds, while II does not. Computerization is a
much beneficial project and investment in it is not all a waste. So, III is not
strong. Further, development in a new field is not a matter of merely following
up other countries. So, IV also does not hold strong.
Q20. Statement: Should
India immediately stop digging coal from its mines?
Arguments:
I. Yes. The present stock of coal will not last long if we
continue mining at the present rate.
II. No. We do not have alternate energy source of sufficient
quantity.
III. No. This will put millions of people at a disadvantage
and their lives will get adversely affected and also the industry.
Only I and II are strong
Only II and III are strong
Only I and III are strong
All are strong
None is strong
Solution:
Though the reserves of coal are limited yet stopping its use till alternate source of energy have been discovered, is no solution to conserve it. So, I is not strong. It is true that we haven’t till date found a renewable source of energy which is available in plenty and can substitute coal. So, II holds strong. Further, stopping coal mining would surely throw the engaged workers out of employment. So, III also holds strong.
Directions (21-25): Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statement are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and

Q26. Statements: “If you
ask me about the daunting challenges that I face, I would say that my
government’s first priority is to improve the existing law and order situation.
Then follows the issue of prices of commodities.” ___ Mr. ROY, a newly
appointed PM of country CLINTON

Assumptions:
I.  If a citizen of
country CLINTON can sleep peacefully, he/she can then think of providing food
to his/her family, ponder over education and move about freely in the country.
II. Prices of the commodities affect the common man greatly.
If only assumption I is implicit
If only assumption II is implicit
If either I or II is implicit
If neither I nor II is implicit
If both I and II are implicit
Solution:
I is not implicit. II is not implicit because the PM only assumes that law and order affects the common man more than prices do.
