Poor itself means that you are low on money. So how can "may" be introduced in that?

Manideep said:   6 years ago
Yes, poor itself conveys they don't have money.

In rich, it is doubtful because they may have assets but poor in the sense in all aspects.

So, I think the answer is A but it's D.

In the statement, it has been mentioned that money plays a vital role in politics and poor means low in money so I follows. Hence answer should be A.

In question, they had mentioned that (All rich men take part in politics). According to me, it is based on their interest to take part in politics. Not every rich man will go in politics.

Poor and rich need not be associated with money all the time if you think carefully.

They can even be about one's personality or character; We are not certain about the aspect in which a person is poor or rich (poor or rich in finance) since it's not mentioned.

So, neither I nor II follows!

Money play a vital role in politics which means even a poor can become a politician if someone with money power play a role for him/her and also not all the rich people with money are interested to take part in politics.

So, option D is correct.
