Logical Reasoning - Statement and Argument - Discussion
Each question given below consists of a statement, followed by three or four arguments numbered I, II, III and IV. You have to decide which of the arguments is/are 'strong' arguments) and which is/are 'weak' arguments) and accordingly choose your answer from the alternatives given below each question.
Statement: Is caste-based reservation policy in professional colleges justified?
- Yes. The step is a must to bring the underprivileged at par with the privileged ones.
- No. It obstructs the establishment of a classless society.
- Yes. This will help the backward castes and classes of people to come out of the oppression of upper caste people.
Clearly, the caste-based system was established because of the first answer "Option I".
"Capability is an essential criterion for a profession and reservation cannot ensure capable workers". Despite this being true, that is certainly not the current situation. Every professional course in India has reservation & we use the 1st option as our defence. So why this hypocrisy? The answer is clearly [A] as our current situation justifies it.
Reservation is a consequence of castism. Just by removing reservation classless society can not be established. So, the Answer should be D.
And looking to the options all holds strong in their sense.
