Statement: The X-Airlines has decided to increase the passenger fare by 15 percent with immediate effect.

Assumptions:

1. The demand for seats of X-Airlines may remain unchanged even after the hike of fare.
2. Other airline companies may also hike the passenger fares.

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, such decisions are taken only after making sure that it will not affect the company's business adversely. So, I is implicit. However, the impact of this increase on other airlines cannot be ascertained. So, II is not implicit.

The statement and assumption 1 are not concerned and 2 assumption is about other airlines companies which is not considerable
then how is the answer?

People are using X-airline more in comparison to the rest so X-airlines might assume that even after increase in fare people will use it.

Can someone explain, how can we be sure that the demand for seats may remain unchanged after the hike of fare?
