Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 34)
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.


Statement: The company has recently announced a series of incentives to the employees who are punctual and sincere.


  1. Those who are not punctual at present may get motivated by the announcement.
  2. The productivity of the company may increase.
  3. The profit earned by the company may be more than the amount to be spent for the incentive programmes.

Only I and II are implicit
None is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
All are implicit
None of these
Answer: Option
Announcing incentives for punctual and sincere employees would surely motivate more and more employees to be punctual, and this will ensure productivity. So, both I and II are implicit. However, the statement does not give any information about the profit earned by the company. So, III is not implicit.

How can they give incentives without having profits?

First cannot be always true because there might be a situation where other employees feel demotivated as their reason for not being punctual could be type of work they do. In that case it is not completely implicit that first option follows.

If the company has surplus amount only, they will be able to give incentives to their employees. That conclusion is implied know. Then why is option D wrong.

Clearly the profit earned by the company must be more than the incentive announced otherwise the company would not have given the incentive. Therefore all the implicit.
