Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 1 (Q.No. 21)
Directions to Solve

In each question below is given a statement followed by two assumptions numbered I and II. You have to consider the statement and the following assumptions and decide which of the assumptions is implicit in the statement.

Give answer

  • (A) If only assumption I is implicit
  • (B) If only assumption II is implicit
  • (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: The government has decided to pay compensation to the tune of Rs. 1 lakh to the family members of those who are killed in railway accidents.


  1. The government has enough funds to meet the expenses due to compensation.
  2. There may be reduction in incidents of railway accidents in near future.

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
Answer: Option
Clearly, the amount of compensation must have been decided keeping in mind the monetary position of the Government. So, I is implicit. However, nothing can be said about the frequency of railway accidents in future. So, II is not implicit.

I think D would be the answer as both are wrong.

To the tune of upto 1lakh. How does it indicate the capacity to pay?

And in what way does accident rate go down even if they compensated?

I think both statements are wrong,

Because the govt has decided to give money to the people who are died in accident as a responsibility of the country.

It is not like that government has this much funds to gave those people.

Can you please help me?
