Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 29)
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 civic authority has decided that all the factories located inside the city limits be shifted outside to reduce the level of environmental pollution in the city.


  1. The pollution level in the city in future may reduce after these factories are shifted outside the city limit.
  2. Enough usable land is available outside the city limit for these factories.
  3. Many of these factories may shift to some other smaller towns to remain profitable.

Only I is implicit
Only I and II are implicit
Only II is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
None of these
Answer: Option
I directly follows from the statement and so is implicit. The decision to shift factories on the outskirts of the city must have been taken after taking into account the availability of land there So, II is implicit. Nothing can be assumed as to what strategy would the factory owners adopt in future. So, III is not implicit.
