Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 33)
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.

33.

Statement: An advertisement: Now you can own a new car in just Rs. 1,999 per month.

Assumptions:

1. People aspire for owning a car.
2. People do not want to buy used cars.
3. Most people can afford to pay Rs. 1,999 per month for a new car.

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:
The advertisement has been given seeing the demand for cars. So, I is implicit. The advertisement stresses on 'owning a new car'. This implies that people would prefer to buy a new car rather than a used one, provided it suits their budget. So, II is implicit. The words 'just Rs. 1,999 per month' in the statement make III implicit.

The statement just says we can own a new car but doesn't say anything about people not wanting to buy used cars.

Even if the amount to pay per month is not much, there still will be people who would prefer used cars for whatever the reason may be.

Correct me, if my assumption is wrong.

How can assumption II is implicit it is out of the context of the statement?

I don't think II is implicit. We can say that people like buying new cars more than used cars but we can't say that people do not want to buy old cars.
