Directions: In making decisions about an important question, it is desirable to be able to distinguish between ‘strong’ arguments and ‘weak’ arguments. ‘Strong’ arguments are those which are both important and directly related to the question. ‘Weak’ arguments are those which are of minor importance and also may not be directly related to the question or may be related to a trivial aspect of the question.
The question below is followed by arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the arguments is/are ‘strong’ argument(s) and which is/are ‘weak’ argument(s) and mark your answer accordingly.
Should Indian government invest more time and resources to collect data, on the basis of which GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is calculated?
I. Yes, there is no good way yet to collect data from the hundreds of millions of establishments that constitute the production sector of our economy.
II. No, it would just take too long and cost too much, especially since much of the production sector of our economy keeps no records.
