  10. I dont think there is any specific method.. :/ why you so confused..??its simple....on the above (3rd) question the statement is "Should the sole evidence of rape victims be supposed enough to prove the guilt" so first argument true ho sakta hai ki yes sole evidence is enough for such a heinous crime BUT AT THE SAME TIME hme doosra point bhi dekhna hai i.e. conviction of we can conclude that dono point strong hai but ek sath co related nahi balki alag alag so..its either I or II..hope you will get my point... let me explain you with another example in my next comment
