Statement: Should the opinion polls predicting outcome of elections before the elections be banned in India?

Arguments:

1. Yes. This may affect the voters mind and may affect the outcome.
2. No. Such polls are conducted all over the world.
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:
The opinion polls may influence the thinking of an individual and thus divert his mind from his original choice. So, argument I holds strong. Further, blindly imitating a policy followed by other countries holds no relevance. So, argument II is vague.

In my opinion, Neither I nor II is appropriate.
