Q9. 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.
Q10. 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.
