# Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption

Exercise : Statement and Assumption - Section 6
Directions to Solve

In each question below is given a statement followed by three assumptions numbered I, II and III. You have to consider the statement and the following assumptions, decide which of the assumptions is implicit in the statement and choose your answer accordingly.

11.

Statement: The professor announced in the class that the next periodical examination will be held on 15th of the next month.

Assumptions:

1. All the students may appear in the examination.
2. The college will remain open on 15th of the next month.
3. The students can study till 15th of the next month to pass the examination.

Only I and II are implicit
Only II is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
Only III is implicit
None of these
Explanation:
The statement mentions only the schedule of the examination. But this doesn't ensure full attendance of students on that day. However, this implies that the college will remain open on the date of examination to hold the same and that the students can study till that date to pass the examination. Hence, only II and III are implicit, while I is not.

12.

Statement: The situation of this area still continues to be tense and out of control. People are requested to be in their homes only.

Assumptions:

1. There had been some serious incidents.
2. People will not go to the office.
3. Normalcy will be restored shortly.

Only I is implicit
Only I and II are implicit
None is implicit
Only I and III are implicit
All are implicit
Explanation:
The statement mentions that situation in the area is tense. So, I is implicit. Since people have been requested not to go out and remain in homes for safety, so II is implicit. It cannot be inferred when the normalcy will be restored. So, III is not implicit.

13.

Statement: "Television X - the neighbour's envy, the owner's pride" - A T.V. advertisement.

Assumptions:

1. Catchy slogans appeal to people.
2. People are envious of their neighbours superior possessions.
3. People want to be envied by their neighbours.

Only I and II are implicit
Only II and III are implicit
Only I and III are implicit
All are implicit
None of these
Explanation:
Clearly, both I and II directly follow from the statement. Also, it is clear that people wish to buy a thing which they can be proud of. So, III is not implicit.

14.

Statement: Keeping in view the financial constraints, the management institution has decided to charge at the time of providing employment in various organisations, a placement fee of Rs. 25000 from the organisations in which the student will be provided the employment.

Assumptions:

1. It will help in increasing the demand of the students belonging to the management institution.
2. The amount collected in this way will be purposeful.
3. It may be possible that the organisation providing employment may select less number of students in future.

None is implicit
Only I is implicit
Only I and II are implicit
Only II and III are implicit
None of these
Explanation:
Since the management has imposed a fee of Rs. 25000 for the employment of each student by the organisation, so III is implicit while I is not. Since the statement mentions that the fee is being charged to cover up the financial constraint, so II is implicit.

15.

Statement: "Z-T.V, the only T.V. which gives the viewers a chance to watch two programmes simultaneously." - An advertisement.

Assumptions:
