Each question below is followed by three arguments numbered (A) (B) and (C) You have to decide which of the arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument

Question 177

Statement: Should there be complete ban on setting up of thermal power plants in India ?
(A)Yes this is the only way to arrest further addition to environmental pollution
(B)No there is a huge shortage of electricity in most parts of the country and hence generation of electricity needs to be augmented
(C)No many developed countries continue to set up thermal power plants in their countries


There are many other reasons for air pollution apart from thermal power plants.
However, electricity demand is more than the supply and hence power production capacity needs to be augmented.
This is the most strong argument against the ban.
Only B offers a strong argument against the ban.
