Statement: "We must introduce objective type tests to improve our examinations for admission to MBA." - The Chairman of the Admission Committee tells the Committee.

  2. The Admission Committee is desirous of improving the admission examinations.
  3. The Chairman himself is an MBA.

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

Answer: Option B


Nothing about the present method of admission or the qualification of the Chairman is mentioned in the statement. So, neither I nor III is implicit. Assumption II directly follows from the statement. So, II is implicit.
