Give answer:

43.

Statement: Should fashionable dresses be banned?

Arguments:

1. Yes. Fashions keep changing and hence consumption of cloth increases.
2. No. Fashionable clothes are a person's self expression and therefore his/her fundamental right.

 [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

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Clearly, imposing ban on fashionable dresses will be a restriction on the personal choice and hence the right to freedom of an individual. So, only argument II is strong.

 Vanessa said: (Jul 16, 2015) I don't understand the explanation. This is an interpretation and opinion. Not a logical conclusion based on the given information. It depends on the context you are thinking in - if you are thinking in the context of capitalism, then this is correct. If you are thinking in the context of environmentally friendly concepts then A might be correct, too.
