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: There is big boom in drug business and a number of jhuggi-jhopari dwellers in Delhi can be seen pedalling with small pouches of smack and brown sugar.


  1. Drug addiction is increasing in the country, specially in the capital.
  2. All the big dons involved in the smuggling of drugs live in jhuggi-jhopari areas.
  3. Most of the jhuggi-jhopari dwellers would do anything for money.

[A]. Only I is implicit
[B]. Only II is implicit
[C]. Only III is implicit
[D]. Only I and III are implicit
[E]. Either I or III is implicit

Answer: Option D


The statement talks of boom in drug business and cites examples from the capital city. This makes I implicit. Further, it is given that most jhuggi-jhopari dwellers are seen to indulge in transactions of drug pouches. This implies that they give in to their lust for money quite easily and do not hesitate to get involved in illegal activities for the same. So, III is implicit while II is not.

The answer will be none of these. Because no knowledge is given about capital, DONS, or money.

Only option I is implicit, option 3 does not imply because term 'anybody' may include other wrong means, which is not true.
