Discussion Forum : Statement and Argument - Section 2 (Q.No. 22)
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 the opinion polls predicting outcome of elections before the elections be banned in India?


  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
Answer: Option
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.

Can anyone explain this in detail?
