|Based on the steps to check forcefulness of arguments, "If the given argument is in the form of a question thrown back by the arguer, then it is declared weak. " So, as argument 1 is a question, it should be weak. But why is it strong here?|

|2nd is universal truth it must be strong argument.
1st is country will be in loss how could it be strong? We should not think emotionally.

|In real life, the action in the statement is actually happening ie it is practicable. So how could a first argument be correct? Please, someone explain me.|

|In the 1st argument, the company is already in loss and if it continues to operate It will incur more loss and eventually there will come a time when either they'll cut down on the workers or shut down, resulting in loss of jobs, so it is not a strong argument. 2nd argument is a universal truth, so it is correct.|

|Option 2- Is a strong argument as it is universal truth.
Option -1 is a weak argument as if govt keep supporting loss making public sectors it will not help our country development.
