Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

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: "Computer education should start at schools itself."


  1. Learning computers is easy.
  2. Computer education fetches jobs easily.

[A]. Only assumption I is implicit
[B]. Only assumption II is implicit
[C]. Either I or II is implicit
[D]. Neither I nor II is implicit
[E]. Both I and II are implicit

Answer: Option A


Clearly, computer education can be started at the school level only if it is easy. So, I is implicit. In the statement, nothing is mentioned about the link between jobs and computer education. So, II is not implicit.

May be only primary computer education is easy... you cannot say " Learning computers is easy " .

If learning computer is easy it should be taught in schools?
there is no relation between easy and learning in school.
so i feel Neither is correct.

No argument is implicit.

Sandip said: (Apr 4, 2012)  
As per as my knowledge no argument is implicit.

I still thin option is D correct because the explanation says "computer education can be started at the school level only if it is easy". What does this mean. For an Adult may the primary education seems easy but not for a KID in primary school. It is as difficult or as easy as we proceed with the higher level of education.

Calculus is also taught at schools, but that does not mean that it is easy. -_-.

Easy doesn't mean that it should be taught in school. No argument is implicit.

I agree with the arguments of above guys. The answer should be "D".

Glen said: (Jun 15, 2014)  
Agree answer is D. Could argue that because learning computers is NOT easy we must start education in school.

Gautam said: (Jun 29, 2015)  
Neither is implicit because it could also happen that it is important so it should be taught in schools. Not its easy.

Nivi said: (Sep 3, 2015)  
None of the statements are implicit.

Nursery schools are also schools but one cannot add computers to their curriculum.

Who says every taught in schools is easy?

The point of school is to challenge students and it is those challenges that teach lessons to students. One learns from failure as well, if it was all easy one would assume that no one would fail a thing. The answer is D.

If not then I assume that the person marking this answer had really easy teachers in school.

I have to agree with everyone here.

The answer should be D. If it was easy, it wouldn't need to be taught. Quantum Mechanics isn't easy, but guess where that's taught. The entire reason for going to school is to be taught something, easy or not.

Here the point is its importance. Computer education is important to learn in schools itself. There is no point of easiness or fetching jobs. None of the options are implicit.

Akash said: (Mar 15, 2017)  
Math is not easy it is available in school right? how can one say if it is easy or not?

Wrong answer, it should be neither.

Subodh Gupta said: (Mar 21, 2017)  
I do agree that option (D) should be the correct one. But can anyone clarify how is option (a) correct?

Ria said: (Jul 25, 2017)  
I also think D because the assumption should have been its important to lean computer education.

Prithwish said: (Feb 16, 2018)  
No relation with the statement. D will be the correct one.

Hrishikesh said: (Apr 26, 2018)  
If one says that computers should be taught at schools, he must have assumed that it is an easy subject because schools are a place of elementary edu; tougher things are taught at colleges. You can't assume urself that calculus is tough. Its that man thinking who give that statement. You have to think like that. Not based on your thinking whether maths is tough for you or not.

Shyam said: (Jul 22, 2018)  
I agree it should be option D.

Saksham Jain said: (Jun 30, 2019)  
I too agree option D is correct.

Saptarshi Das said: (Jul 26, 2019)  
"Computer education should start at schools itself" to impart technical education in Children to make up to the demands of technological advancements.

Surya said: (Feb 17, 2021)  
Why the assumption 1 is implicit? According to me, the correct option will be D.
