Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

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.


Statement: "A rare opportunity to be a professional while you are at home." - An advertisement for computer literate housewives by a computer company.


  1. Some housewives simultaneously desire to become professional.
  2. Computer industry is growing at a fast pace.
  3. It is possible to be a professional as well as a housewife.

[A]. Only I and II are implicit
[B]. Only II and III are implicit
[C]. Only I and III are implicit
[D]. Only II is implicit
[E]. None of these

Answer: Option C


Clearly, a company would highlight only that feature in its advertisement which people crave for and which it can make possible. So, both I and III are implicit. Nothing can be deduced about the growth of computer industry. So, II is not implicit.
