Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 10)
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: "Put. a notice on the board that all the employees should come on time to office." - An officer tells his assistant.


  1. All the employees come late.
  2. Employees read such notice on the board.
  3. Employees will follow the instructions.

Only I and II are implicit
Only III is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
Only I and III are implicit
All are implicit
Answer: Option
The notice directs all the employees to come on time. This does not mean that all of them come late. So, I is not implicit. Since the officer orders the assistant to put the notice on the board, it is evident that the employees read such notice on the board. So, II is implicit. Also, the employees have to comply with the orders of the officer. So, III is implicit.
