• (C) If either I or II is implicit
• (D) If neither I nor II is implicit
• (E) If both I and II are implicit.

Statement: If you have any problems, bring them to me.

Assumptions:

1. You have some problems.
2. I can solve any problem.

Only assumption I is implicit
Only assumption II is implicit
Either I or II is implicit
Neither I nor II is implicit
Both I and II are implicit
Explanation:
The word 'If shows that 'you' do not necessarily have problems. So, I is not implicit. Also, the statement states that problems will be solved by 'me'. So II is implicit.

"Bring them to me" only means noticing the problem. NOT solving it. The answer is Wrong.

Statement II says "bring them to me" does not mean "I will solve your problem". It only says problem can be shared to me not to be solved by me.
