Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : Only argument 1 is strong.

Given data :

Statement: Should use of mobile phone be banned while driving ?

Arguments: 

1. Yes, most of the time it causes accident → True strong argument (Talking or texting on a mobile phone while driving a vehicle is dangerous)

2. No, this can create a major problem for mobile users in emergency → False weak argument (We can also talk on mobile in an emergency case by stopping the vehicle)

Hence, 'Only argument 1 is strong' is the correct answer.
