Logical Reasoning - Statement and Argument - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Argument - Section 2 (Q.No. 31)
Directions to Solve

Each question given below consists of a statement, followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the arguments is a 'strong' argument and which is a 'weak' argument.

Give answer:

  • (A) If only argument I is strong
  • (B) If only argument II is strong
  • (C) If either I or II is strong
  • (D) If neither I nor II is strong and
  • (E) If both I and II are strong.


Statement: Should there be concentration of foreign investment in only few states?


  1. No. It is against the policy of overall development of the country.
  2. Yes. A large number of states lack infrastructure to attract foreign investment.
Only argument I is strong
Only argument II is strong
Either I or II is strong
Neither I nor II is strong
Both I and II are strong
Answer: Option
An equitable distribution of foreign investment is a must for uniform development all over the country. So, argument I holds. Also, no backward state ought to be neglected, rather such states should be prepared and shaped up to attract. Foreign investment as well. So, II does not hold.

This test is not judging implicit logical reasoning but the alignment of ones political opinion with that of the test creator.

Yeah, he did not mention anything about policy, but by default you have to consider the entire policy. It's common sense bro.

Author didnt mention any thing about policy of overall development of the country. So Option I cannot be correct
