Only I is implicit.

Only II is implicit.

 C

Either I or II is implicit.

Question 3

Statement: The politician said, "I will give pension to all employees in this country."

Assumptions: .

  1. Government employees will get pension on joining a service.

 A

Only I is implicit.

 B

Only II is implicit.

 C

Neither I nor II is implicit.

 D

I and II are implicit.

Soln.
Ans: c

The statement of the politician is very vague. He has not stated other conditions, riders and minimum service criteria. So until the final written order and clarifications arrive, nothing can be assumed.


Question 4

Statement: Incentive must be given to strengthen the motivation of the employees.

Assumptions: .

  1. Incentives are excepted to motivate the employees.
  2. Employees at present are not motivated.
 A

Only I is implicit.

 B

Only II is implicit.

 C

Both I and II are implicit.

 D

Neither I nor II is implicit.

Soln.
Ans: c

Employees are not motivated, that's why they need incentive. Secondly, incentive will motivate them, that's why it is being given. So both I and II are implicit.


Question 5

Statement: Only first class Science graduates are eligible for the job.

Assumptions: .

  1. Students with graduation in fields other than Science are not as intellectual.
  2. Courses other than Science are available at the graduation level.
 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: b

The issue is not about intellectual abilities, it is about suitability of candidates with science subjects. So assumption I is not right.

Assumption (II) is implicit because science students have specifically been asked, and others excluded.
