Q:

Should there be a complete ban on import of sugar by India?

Arguments :

I. No. The production of sugar in India is not sufficient to meet the requirement.

II. No. This will keep the prices of sugar under control as the supply will be adequate.

A) If only argument I is strong B) If only argument II is strong
C) If neither I nor II is strong D) If both I and II are strong
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) If both I and II are strong

Explanation:

Import of sugar is directly related with the domestic production of sugar. If import of sugar is banned then it will result in hoarding of sugar besides increase in its prices (due to less supply than the requirement). Hence I is strong. Note that availability of a commodity keeps the prices of the commodity under control. Hence, II is strong.
