Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 12)
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.


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


  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
Answer: Option
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.

So, People are requested to stay home. They aren't banned from going out.
I don't think it implies that they will stay home and not go to office.

I think that statement 2 which says people will not go to office is incomplete as it is expected from the people that they should avoid going everywhere and not only to offices. Can anyone help me on this, please?

I support option d here because not everybody goes to the office (unemployment) and the statement implies that some serious situation has taken place. The word "still" shows it's not yet and yet to be.
