Correct Answer - Option 3 : Both statement (I) and (II) are effects of some independent causes.

Drug addiction is a big problem with the college-going generation. But it cannot cause a decline in the number of health-related problems. If nothing else, it would lead to youth suffering from such health issues.

Thus, statements I and II are totally unrelated situations and hence are the results of independent causes.

Hence, Option 3 is the correct answer.
