Statement: Should girls learn arts like judo and karate?

Arguments:

1. Yes. It will enable them to defend themselves from rogues and ruffians.
2. No. They will lose their feminine grace.

 [A]. Only argument I is strong [B]. Only argument II is strong [C]. Either I or II is strong [D]. Neither I nor II is strong [E]. Both I and II are strong

Explanation:

Learning martial arts is necessary for girls for self-defence. So, argument I holds. However, argument II is vague since a training in these arts has nothing to do with their feminine grace.
