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

6.

Statement: The Central Government has directed the State Governments to reduce government expenditure in view of the serious resource crunch and it may not be able to sanction any additional grant to the states for the next six months.

Assumptions:

1. The State Governments are totally dependent on Central Government for its expenditures.
2. The Central Government has reviewed the expenditure account of the State Government.
3. The State Governments will abide by the directive.

None is implicit
Only II and III are implicit
Only III is implicit
All are implicit
None of these
Explanation:
Nothing about the sources of income of the State Governments is mentioned in the statement. So, I is not implicit. Since the Central Government has directed the State Governments to reduce expenditure, so II is implicit. Further, since the Central Government has refused any further grant to the State Governments for the next six months, it is quite clear that these Governments will abide by the directive. So, III is also implicit.

The central government is well aware and keeps the record of both income and expenditure of state government so it is dependent on central government and definetly 1 is implicit.

Yes, as per statement it is clear that central government has some knowledge of expenditure of state gov. So assumption I is also implicit.

Wrong answer as assumption I does not mention source of income. Hence correct answer should be option D. All are implicit.
