Q1: Statement: Should internal assessment in colleges be abolished? Arguments:
  1. Yes. This will help in reducing the possibility of favouritism.
  2. No, teaching faculty will lose control over students.

A Only argument I is strong

B Either I or II is strong

C Both I and II are strong

D Only argument II is strong

E Neither I nor II is strong

ANS:A - Only argument I is strong

Explanation: Abolishing the internal assessment would surely reduce favouritism on personal grounds because the teachers would not be involved in examination system so that they cannot extend personal benefits to anyone. So, argument I holds strong. But it will not affect the control of teaching faculty on students because still the teachers would be teaching them. So, argument II is vague.
