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: "Television X - the neighbour's envy, the owner's pride" - A T.V. advertisement.
- Catchy slogans appeal to people.
- People are envious of their neighbours superior possessions.
- People want to be envied by their neighbours.
It's clear that their target demographic includes people that would make a purchase so as to boost their ego's by way of their neighbors envy. The answer is clearly D (All are implicit)
Since they included "neighbor's envy" doesn't that mean that people actually want to be envied by others?
However, I do not agree that I is implicit, since the statement does not offer any information about its success as a TV advertisement (also, "catchy" is a highly subjective term).
