Solution

Both the arguments are weak

Explanation:

Both the arguments given in the question are weak. Judicial activism leading to executive dictatorship is an exaggeration of the situation.

Why it should stay within constitutional limits or what effects it will have are not mentioned, making it a weak argument. Hence, 'Both the arguments are weak' is the correct.

If possible, interest on loans taken by farmers should be waived besides converting the short-term loans into long-term ones, It is necessary to work out a way to take over the loans taken from primitive money lenders or reschedule them. Coming to long-term steps, the AXI paper says new water resources be explored besides building water supply projects and creating rainwater storage facilities. Dryland cultivation ought to be promoted apart from popularizing water-saving irrigation technologies.
