Statement: The government has set up a fact finding mission to look into the possible reasons for the recent violence in the area.


  1. The mission may be able to come up with credible information about the incidents.
  2. The people in the area may cooperate with the mission and come forward to give detailed information related to the incidents.

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 plan of the government is to work out the causes for spread of violence and then take adequate steps to uproot them. So, I is implicit. Besides, this step of the government is for the welfare of the general public only. So, II is also implicit.

I can't understand that, why II is implicit?

No, II should not be implicit as there was no info about the people's cooperation.

II is implicit because may is there, so possibility so we can deduce it.

RIA said:   7 years ago
Yeah, why 2 is implicit?

It is not necessary that government is for the welfare of the general public, so 2 should be true we cannot deduce anything about the public.
