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: 'Several labour and industrial courts in this State have no proper premises. Vacancies of judges and stenos are kept pending.' - A statement of a retired judge of State X.


  1. Adequate number of staff and judges helps in the smooth functioning of the industrial and labour courts.
  2. The State is not bothered about the condition of the labour and industrial courts.
  3. Physical facilities of an office help in increasing efficiency of its employees.

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

Answer: Option D


The statement expresses grave concern over the lack of proper premises and inadequate staff in labour and industrial courts. This implies that adequate staff is a must to serve the purpose of these courts and a proper office only can ensure their smooth functioning. So, both I and III are implicit. The lack of facilities to the courts also indicates the state's negligent attitude to the condition of the courts. So, II is also implicit.

All are definitely not implicit, as there is no info about the efficiency of the employees and neither the retired judge speaks of improving the efficiency.
