Statement: Should the age of marriage be raised to 25 years for boys and 21 for girls?

Arguments:

(i) No, it is difficult to change a social practice in Indian conditions.

(ii) Yes, by that age people develop a sense of responsibility and also complete their education.

#### Options

• Argument (i) is strong.

• Argument (ii) is strong.

• Both (i) and (ii) are strong.

• Neither (i) nor (ii) is strong.

#### Solution

Argument (ii) is strong.

Explanation:

Here, only argument II is strong. It is fair to say that people are mature and responsible for this age and then they should get married. The inability to changing a social practice does not justify its existence. Hence, argument I is weak. 'Argument (ii) is strong' is correct.
