Statement: Should all the infrastructural development projects in India be handed over to the private sector?

Arguments:

  1. No. The private sector entities are hot equipped to handle such projects.
  2. Yes. Such projects are handled by private sector in the developed countries.

[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 D

Explanation:

Clearly, such projects if handed over to the private sector shall be given to a competent authority. So, argument I is vague. Also, imitating a policy on the basis that it worked out successfully in other countries holds no relevance. Thus, argument II also does not hold strong.
