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.

Assumptions:

1. Conveyance allowance will not help in bringing punctuality.
2. Discipline and reward should always go hand in hand.

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:
Assumption I goes against the statement. So, it is not implicit. The allowance will serve as a reward to the employees and shall provoke them to come on time. So, II is implicit.

Can you please tell why statement 2 is implicit?

In the main statement, the author is nowhere talking about discipline and all. Please explain.

Can you explain how statement 2 is implicit?

Ashish Upadhyaya said:   9 years ago
It should be D. The word ''always'' in statement II makes it very generalized. Also, as pointed out by others, this isn't about discipline and reward.

Uddeshya said:   9 years ago
From my opinion also option D should be correct.

Were it the case that, conveyance allowance will be given on punctuality basis then option B would have made sense. But clearly that is not the case here.

Jaydev said:   9 years ago
Option D is correct. As rightly shorted out by Ravindra and Ali, conveyance allowance has nothing to do with discipline and it is not a reward to employees.

Ali said:   10 years ago
By the way can someone tell me how conveyance allowance is can be called as a reward to employee? As it is for all it may be received by someone who often comes late.

Katrina said:   10 years ago
I agree with @Ravindra and @Harshal. The statement doesn't say anything about discipline or what happens to the employees who are late. Also, the statement only mentions one topic-- conveyance allowance-- so it can't be said that discipline and reward ALWAYS go hand in hand if the statement is only talking about one particular issue.

Harshal said:   10 years ago
I agree with @Ravindra the statement 2 is too strong cannot be said to be implicit.
