Is the Government justified in spending so much on defence?
I. Yes. Safety of the country is of prime importance.
II. No. During peace, this money could be used for the development of the country.
Answer & Explanation
A) Only argument I is strong
Clearly, defence is necessary for the safety of the country, which is of prime importance. So, argument I holds. Also, a country can concentrate on internal progress and development only when it is safe from external aggressions. So, argument II does not hold.
