 A

Only I is implicit.

 B

Only II is implicit.

Neither I or II is implicit.

 D

I and II are implicit.

Soln.
Ans: c

I is not implicit because the boy may be making a statement or proposal from his side. There is nothing which says that the girl is asking for a promise, or that she wants to marry this specific boy. Regarding II, it is not possible to gauge the reality in the boy's mind from just this statement. So neither follows.


Question 5

Statement: In order to build more space, extra FSI needs to be bought.

Assumptions: .

  1. The person being told does not know the meaning of FSI.
  2. More space will reduce the construction cost.
 A

Only I is implicit.

 B

Only II is implicit.

 C

Either I or II is implicit.

 D

Neither I nor II is implicit.

Soln.
Ans: d

Both the persons know what is FSI, because the communication is using this abbreviation. So I is.

not implicit. Secondly, we do not know what is FSI or what it's effects on space and construction cost are, so as far as we are concerned, we cannot say that assumption II is correct for sure. So nether I nor II is implicit.
