Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 11)
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.


11.

Statement: The professor announced in the class that the next periodical examination will be held on 15th of the next month.

Assumptions:

  1. All the students may appear in the examination.
  2. The college will remain open on 15th of the next month.
  3. The students can study till 15th of the next month to pass the examination.

Only I and II are implicit
Only II is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
Only III is implicit
None of these
Answer: Option
Explanation:
The statement mentions only the schedule of the examination. But this doesn't ensure full attendance of students on that day. However, this implies that the college will remain open on the date of examination to hold the same and that the students can study till that date to pass the examination. Hence, only II and III are implicit, while I is not.

1st sentence implicit, since it is clear assumption that all students would appear.

Statement 2 is not implicit it is very ambiguous to say that it is implicit.

Nowhere in the statement it says college. So II is not implicit.

In the statement announcement is made to a class and not to All students in that institution may be exam is for that class only. So I is not implicit. Only III is implicit.

It is not necessary for the college to be open up to the next month there may be holiday too till the start of examination. Hence how could that 2 statement be implicit?

Does it is inferred from sentence that college will remain open?

Statement a doesn't say that all the students will show up on the 15th, it says they may show up on the 15th, which is possible. Why is it not implicit?

Now, if an exam is to be held on 15th, we don't assume that we might read upto 15th. We conclude that. So both statement 2 and 3 are more conclusions than assumptions.

What if the examinations are being held outside the college ?
