Statement: To improve the employment situation in India, there is a need to recast the present educational system towards implementation of scientific discoveries in daily life.


  1. The students after completing such education may be able to earn their livelihood.
  2. This may bring meaning of education in the minds of the youth.
  3. The state may earn more revenue as more and more people will engage themselves in self-employment.

[A]. None is implicit
[B]. Only I and II are implicit
[C]. Only III is implicit
[D]. Only I and III are implicit
[E]. None of these

Answer: Option B


The statement mentions that such education can improve employment situation. So, both I and II are implicit. Nothing about the aspect of revenue collection is mentioned in the statement. So, III is not implicit.

Statement-I is surely implicit. Because the whole purpose of that action taken is to generate employment. And that is mentioned in the statement as well. Earning livelihood id nothing but getting employment.
