Statement: "If I am not well you will have to go for the meeting." - A manager tells his subordinate.


  1. It is not necessary that only manager level personnel attend the meeting.
  2. If the manager is well, he would himself like to go for the meeting.

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 subordinate can attend the meeting as told by the Manager only when there is no inhibition. So, I is implicit. The subordinate is told to go only in case when the Manager is not well. This also shows the urgency to attend the meeting. So, II is also implicit.
