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

Arguments:

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
Explanation:
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.
