minor importance and also may not be directly related to the question or may be related to a trivial
aspect of the question. Each question below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You
have to decide which of the arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument?

Give answer:
(a) If only argument I is strong
(b) If only argument II is strong
