"Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person."
- Mother Teresa

In each question below is given a statement followed by two assumptions numbered I and II. You have to consider the statement and the following assumptions and decide which of the assumptions is implicit in the statement.

• (A) If only assumption I is implicit
• (B) If only assumption II is implicit
• (C) If either I or II is implicit
• (D) If neither I nor II is implicit
• (E) If both I and II are implicit.

1.

Statement: "You are hereby appointed as a programmer with a probation period of one year and your performance will be reviewed at the end of the period for confirmation." - A line in an appointment letter.

Assumptions:

1. The performance of an individual generally is not known at the time of appointment offer.
2. Generally an individual tries to prove his worth in the probation period.

 [A]. Only assumption I is implicit [B]. Only assumption II is implicit [C]. Either I or II is implicit [D]. Neither I nor II is implicit [E]. Both I and II are implicit

Explanation:

The performance of the individual has to be tested over a span of time as the statement mentions. So, I is implicit. The statement mentions that the individual's worth shall be reviewed (during probation period) before confirmation. So, II is also implicit.

 Gangareddy said: (Fri, Feb 3, 2012 09:35:25 AM) I want to know the meaning of implicit.

 Marie Curie said: (Sun, Apr 29, 2012 08:58:20 AM) First is to look for context clues. What is the statement all about. In this statement, "acceptance to service". Then based on this, you now see the options if they say anything about the statement. Usually, if the option is a generalization, it is not true. If the option has no connection to the statement, then it is not the correct answer, of course.

It is an implied term which is understandable though not directly expressed. Also, reviewing his/her performance implied that he/she will be appraised after having gone through the given period to determine whether he/she deserves to be employed. The two scenarios means that both are implicit. Implicit simply means an implied or to understand though not directly or clearly expressed.
