Correct Answer - Option 4 : Only argument I is ‘strong’. 

Argument 1 is strong as human lives are precious and if robots are alternative that can replace and save them then the decision is worth giving a thought for as in the past we have witnessed astronauts dying during space missions.

Argument 2 is not strong as space missions have always been expensive and the introduction of robots for a space mission is not something that will be ignored because of its expenses.

Hence, only argument I is ‘strong’.
