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.
- (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: "In order to bring punctuality in our office, we must provide conveyance allowance to our employees." - In charge of a company tells Personnel Manager.
- Conveyance allowance will not help in bringing punctuality.
- Discipline and reward should always go hand in hand.
For example, be on time to work each day. When we think about "discipline" and "reward" on an interview question, it might well reflect that we are people who strongly recognize the importance of coming to work on time. It might well reflect that we are expected to treat our paycheck as a reward for complying with the mangers' wishes.
The main problem with the question is that the test is not named correctly, and it should be named Logical Employee Compliance Measurement, or some such.
1st option is against the statement and hence would have stopped the author from writing this.
2nd option talks about the discipline and reward always going hand in hand which totally satisfies the statement as he demanded this order in order to bring discipline.
So he is pretty sure hat this will definitely bring punctuality mark the word ALWAYS in option 2. Otherwise, you will not get the point.
So here according to the statement 1st one does not follow and 2nd one even though it is wrong really, we want to take it as a true based on the statement given [blindly trust the statement as true].
