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: "Join X-tuition classes for sure success. Excellent teaching by excellent teachers is our strength." - An advertisement.


  1. Sure success is desirable.
  2. Students expect sure success when they join any tuition class.
  3. Just having excellent teachers does not ensure success.

[A]. Only I and II are implicit
[B]. Only II and III are implicit
[C]. Only I and III are implicit
[D]. Only II is implicit
[E]. All are implicit

Answer: Option A


The advertisement seeks to attract the students by promising them sure success. So, both I and II are implicit. Assumption III does not follow from the statement and so is not implicit.

What if excellent teachers may not teach excellently?

I think III is implicit as well.

"Excellent teaching by excellent teachers is our strength".

Some excellent teachers do not teach excellently that's why they said that in their advertisement.

People desire excellent teacher who excels in teaching.

SURE SUCCESS, they said. And the "excellent teaching" is the key for having that.

I do not think argument A follows because the passage did not I only that student will pass when they join any tuition class but when they join X tuition classes-their own advert.

Sure success is desirable might not be an expectation from all the tuition classes but this coaching provides that. Hence, II might not be correct.

Also, 3 seems correct as excellent teachers might not provide excellent teaching.
