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: This book is so prepared that even a layman can study science in the absence of a teacher.


  1. A layman wishes to study science without a teacher.
  2. A teacher may not always be available to teach science.
  3. A layman generally finds it difficult to learn science on its own.

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

Answer: Option B


Clearly, the statement is made to impress the usefulness of the book. It does not mention the desire of a layman. So, I is not implicit. Also, the book is intended to guide one when a teacher is not available. So, both II and III are implicit.

How come option B is correct? According to my point instead of giving II and III are implicit in option B just give it as only III are implicit.
