21.

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.

Assumptions:

  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
Explanation:
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.

Govt is compensating them as a sense of responsibility, it would be wrong to say that govt has enough fund to compensate. The answer should be D, as statement B also don't have any direct link to the statement.

I think the answer must be D. Because nowhere mentioned about government budget.
