Logical Reasoning - Statement and Argument - Discussion

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 Doordarshan be given autonomous status?


  1. Yes. It will help Doordarshan to have fair and impartial coverage of all important events.
  2. No. The coverage of events will be decided by a few who may not have healthy outlook.

[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 A


Clearly, the autonomous status of the Doordarshan will be a step towards giving it independence for an impartial coverage. Autonomous status does not mean that the coverage will be decided by a few. So, only argument I holds.

Please, elaborate how "Autonomous status does not mean that the coverage will be decided by a few. "?

I really don't understand, how all these question and answers answered. Can anyone tell the strategy of answering statement and argument questions?

What the heck is Doordarshan?

It is based on the premise that Doordarshan is not independent. How has that assumption been arrived at?
