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.

27. 

Statement: Wars must be discouraged vehemently even though majority of the victims might have been a nuisance to peace loving people.

Assumptions:

  1. Wars kill majority of wicked people.
  2. Innocent people are also killed in wars.
  3. Vehement opposition to wars may have some desirable impact.

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

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

The statement mentions that'.....majority of the victims might have been a nuisance to peace loving people. This implies that majority of the victims are wicked people though some victims are innocent people too. So, both I and II are implicit. Further, the statement advocates vehement opposition of wars. So, III is also implicit.

Clearly 1 is a generalized statement so how can we deduce I.
