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.


9.

Statement: Ravi decided to leave office at 4.00 p.m. to catch a flight to Bangalore departing at 6.00 p.m.

Assumptions:

  1. The flight to Bangalore may be delayed.
  2. He may be able to reach airport well before 6.00 p.m.
  3. He may get adequate time to search for a vehicle to go to the airport.

None is implicit
Only II is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
All are implicit
None of these
Answer: Option
Explanation:
I cannot be assumed from the given statement and so it is not implicit. Also, knowing that his flight is scheduled to depart at 6 p.m., Ravi would leave accordingly, keeping enough time to search for a vehicle and to reach the airport well before time. So, both II and III are implicit.

It is also possible that Ravi has his own vehicle and need not look for public transport.

Ravi can own his own vehicle (car/bike). Hence 3 is not implicit.

It may be possible that Ravi's office is nearer to airport and he can reach there by walk. So statement 3 can't be Implicit.
