Only II and III are implicit
Only I and III are implicit
All are implicit
None of these
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Clearly, the company lends more importance to mechanical engineers. This shows that they are believed to perform better. So, I is implicit. Also, the advertisement is given because the company needs supervisors. So, II is implicit. Further, the advertisement is meant to attract only mechanical engineers for the vacancy in company X. Hence, III is also implicit.

I completely agree with you @Shruti. How can we implicitly decide that Company X considers them as better performance, where nothing has been mentioned about performance.

It didn't said anything about the performance of mechanical engineers. It might be that today company is in need of mechanical engineers tomorrow it will be in need of some other profession.
