Statement: Youngsters are often found staring at obscene posters.

Courses of Action:

1. Children should be punished and penalized if they are found doing so.
2. Any display of such material should be banned.

Only I follows
Only II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Explanation:
Bad things attract more and punishment after the act has been committed is no remedy. The act should be prevented. So, only course II follows.

The correct answer is D, neither follows. Reaching conclusion B relies on the following assumptions, not provided in the question:

1) Youngsters staring at obscene posters is to be avoided.

2) A ban would be effective at reducing this.

3) The above consideration outweighs any negative impacts of a ban.

4) There are no alternative methods of achieving the objectives of a ban, which have fewer negative impacts.
