 C

Either I or II is implicit.

 D

Soln.
Ans: d

The assumption in putting up the notice boards at various places is that the drivers have a tendency of ignoring such warnings if they are put at one place, or if an advertisement is given in print media. By putting such notice boards at various places, the traffic police wants the drivers to be continuously reminded about it. So assumption I is implicit. The second assumption is also implicit, because such offenders will still be there, and they have been made aware of the penalty.
