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.

15. 

Statement: In the recently held All India Commerce Conference the session on 'Management of Service Sector in India' surprisingly attracted large number of participants and also received a very good media coverage in the leading newspapers.

Assumptions:

  1. People were not expecting such an encouraging response for service sector.
  2. Service sector is not managed properly in India.
  3. Media is always very positive towards service sector.

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

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Since the response was 'surprising', so I is implicit. Nothing about the real management of service sector can be deduced from the statement. So, II is not implicit. Also, the statement talks of the media's response to only a particular session on service sector and not all in general. So, III is also not implicit.

Words like always, never and only are extreme. So III is not implicit. Nothing can be deduced from statement regarding management of service sector. So II is also not implicit. Statement talks about the session based on service sector and not the service sector itself. So I is also not implicit.

[A] None is implicit.

The 'response' surprised the media and the organizers and not the people, at large. As the people also includes the participants. So, I is not implicit.
