I and II are implicit.

Soln.

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: 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: .

  1. It is possible to devise a system which would indicate those applicants who were rejected earlier.
  2. This company considers three months time too short a period to reconsider a candidate for an interview.
 A

Only I is implicit.

Only II is implicit.

 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.


Question 5

Statement: For any kind of problem with your mobile phone, contact our help desk immediately.

Assumptions: .

  1. Help desk has a solution to all kinds of problems related to mobile phones or will guide accordingly.
  2. Unless the problem is reported immediately it cannot be solved.

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

If you have any problem with a phone, we can help you out now. If the problem is not reported now(there could be other places where the help can be obtained.) It doesn't mean that the problem cannot be solved. So only I is implicit.
