Question 4

Statement: The residents asked the government to extend the bus service to Kalagram as it would be more convenient.

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 government hasn't refused the request, so we cannot say government is indifferent. Similarly, until and unless there is some refusal from the government and reasons known it is not possible to assume II.


Question 5

Statement: Please check the availability of 2 tickets from Delhi to Mumbai.

Assumptions: .

  1. Person checking knows the desired mode of travel.
  2. Person checking knows the details of the person travelling.
 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: a

Since the requesting person has not specified any specific mode of travel, the person checking is already aware of it. So I is implicit. Once the availability is ensured, the details can be asked at that time. So it is not correct to assume II.
