 B

Only II is implicit.

 C

Either I or II is implicit.

 D

Neither I nor II is implicit.

Soln.
Ans: c

The patient may or may not accept the doctor's advice. So assumption I is possible. But, if the patient heeds to the doctor's advice, then assumption II will follow. So either I or II will take place.


Question 2

Statement: A recruitment company makes an interview offer to someone it had rejected three months ago. There is no database to keep record of that.

Assumptions: .

 C

Either I or II is implicit.

 D

Neither I nor II is implicit.

Soln.
Ans: b

Even though modern computer systems can of course device a system which would indicate those applicants who were rejected earlier, but this fact is not deducible in any way from the given statement. So all we can say is that only II is obvious.

Only II is implicit.

 C

  2. The job is meant for candidates who have all the necessary documents.
 A

Only I is implicit.

 B

Only II is implicit.

 C

Either I or II is implicit.

 D

I and II are implicit.

Soln.
Ans: a

The advertisement specifically wants the backward class candidates to apply, so general candidates should not apply. So I is implicit. Again, II is not implicit because the job is meant only for those backward class candidates who actually are qualified and have necessary documentary proof to establish there eligibility.
