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.

- (B) If only argument II is strong
- (C) If either I or II is strong

- (E) If both I and II are strong.
Statement: Should there be students union in college/university?
- No. This will create a political atmosphere in the campus.
- Yes, it is very necessary Students are future political leaders.
I think that students unions play a major role in helping solve problems faced by other students to make sure to build a vibrant student community.
Argument 2: Provides an established fact, that the students are/will be future political leaders. But again it doesn't directly link to setting up of the student union.
Both the arguments are WEAK.
Actually, if the QUESTION / STATEMENT have been put up like - Should elections be held among students in college/university?
Arguments 1 & 2 may had followed!
If anybody wants to be a politician there is no need of gain political experience in college. Politician means to serve the people by heart either in a state or country. PM Modi says think to do something rather than thinking of achieving something. If students gain political experience in colleges to do politics in future rather than thinking of serving the people. There is no need of such politicians. Thus arg 2 is not correct. Students unions are generally made to manage and reach student's problem or opinion to the college authority by the union leader. But now many of the universities do politics by group separation or division.
So that disturbances happen in studies and college environment is fully disturbed. So I think argument 1 is fully correct.
