In making a decision about an important question, it is desirable to distinguish between a 'strong' argument and a 'weak' argument.

A 'weak' argument may not be directly related to the question and may be of minor importance or may be related to the trivial aspect of the question. The question below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the arguments is 'strong' and which is 'weak'.

Therefore, Vijay's contention that the dent in the formerly undented company-owned vehicle was caused by the careless actions of another person is not true.

Still, I doubt the same ecologists endorsing the resumption of leopard hunting would use that fact to recommend the hunting of human beings.
