Question 18

In the question a statement is given, followed by two arguments, I and II. You have to consider the statement to be true even if it seems to be at variance from commonly known facts. You have to decide which of the given arguments, if any, is a strong argument.

Statement : Should zoos be closed down?

Argument I : Yes, imprisoning animals is a crime.
Argument II : No, it is fine if some animals are kept in captivity for sake of entertainment.


The first argument indicates that imprisoning animals is a crime, hence it has a strong impact on the given statement about ceasing the zoos, thus it is a strong argument. But, the second argument does not provide a strong idea as to why or why not the zoos should be closed down.

Thus, only argument I is strong.

=> Ans - (A)
