35.

Statement: The economic condition continues to be critical even after a good harvest season.

Assumptions:

  1. The economic condition was not critical before the harvest season.
  2. The economic condition could not have improved without a good harvest season.
  3. The economic condition was expected to improve after a good harvest season.

Only I and II are implicit
Only II is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
Only III is implicit
Only I and III are implicit
Answer: Option
Explanation:
It is mentioned that 'the economic condition continues to be critical'. This means that it was critical before the harvest season also. So, I is not implicit. Also, the statement does not imply that only a good harvest season could improve the economic condition. So, II is not implicit. However, since a surprise has been expressed over the condition being critical even after a good harvest season, it means that it was expected to improve after a good harvest season. So, III is implicit.
