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.

18. 

Statement: We must be prepared to face any eventuality and all the assignments must be completed as per their schedule - Director tells the Faculty members.

Assumptions:

  1. There is possibility of any serious eventuality.
  2. Dates are fixed for all the assignments.
  3. Faculty members are supposed to complete all the assignments.

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

Answer: Option E

Explanation:

Since the Director talks of being prepared to face any eventuality, so I is implicit. It is mentioned that a schedule for completing the assignments has been drawn up. So, II is implicit. The fact that the statement is directed to all the faculty members makes III implicit.

If the Director is talking to the Faculty members, why would he/she use the pronoun 'their' to address them?
