Statement: It is desirable to put the child in school at the age of 5 or so.

Assumptions:

1. At that age the child reaches appropriate level of development and is ready to learn.
2. The schools do not admit children after six years of age.

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:
Since the statement talks of putting the child in school at the age of 5, it means that the child is mentally prepared for the same at this age. So, I is implicit. But nothing about admission after 6 years of age is mentioned in the statement. So, II is not implicit.

Here only 1 statement is implicit as at very early age the child reaches the level of development and able to understand things but fixation of 6 years in a general case in not possible. So, 2 do not follow.

School does not admit after 6 years of the case is a general case which doesn't need to be dealt with the statements and hence IInd is explicit, whereas 1 is implicit because this is only the age at which child is mentally prepared to join the school.

At that age means which age?

At the age of 5 the child is vehemently ready to learn and being the period of discovery I support A as an implicit by guys you need to educate us how to make such conclusions.

Statement talks about desirability of putting a child in school.

Therefore it is assumed that child has reached the the age where he is ready to learn.

Negating 2nd Assumption we have "School do admit students after 6 Years of age. ".

If it be the case still one can talk of putting the child in school at the age of 5 years.

So the two are independent and not related anyway.

Therefore II is not an assumption.
