Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 6 (Q.No. 31)
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: Considering the tickets sold during the last seven days, the circus authorities decided to continue the show for another fortnight which includes two weekends.


  1. People may not turn up on weekdays.
  2. The average number of people who will be visiting circus will be more or less same as that of the last seven days.
  3. There may not be enough response at other places.

All are implicit
None is implicit
Only II is implicit
Only I and II are implicit
None of these
Answer: Option
Clearly, the fortnight would include weekdays also. So, I is not implicit. Also, the authorities decided to continue the show with the hope that people would visit the circus in the same numbers as they had done in the last seven days. So, II is implicit. III is vague and so is not implicit.

Maybe they knew even if half of them turn up, still they would still profit. So II is not implicit.
