Question 70

Facts, which deal with pieces of information that one has heard, seen or read, and which are open to discovery or verification (the answer option indicates such a statement with an `F’).

Inferences,which are conclusions drawn about the unknown, on the basis of the known (the answer option indicates such a statement with an `I’).

Judgements which are opinions that imply approval or disapproval of persons, objects, situations and occurrences in the past, the present or the future (the answer option indicates such a statement with a J)

Select the answer option that best describes the set of four statements.

1.Inequitable distribution of all kinds of resources is certainly one of the strongest and most sinister sources of conflict.

2.Even without war, we know that conflicts continue to trouble us - they only change in character.

3.Extensive disarmament is the only insurance for our future; imagine the amount of resources that can be released and redeployed.

4.The economies of the industrialized western world derive 20% of their income from the sale of all kinds of arms.


Statements 1 and 3 are judgements because they are both opinions of the author. This eliminates all options except B. Hence B is the right answer.
