  • (E) If both I and II are implicit.


Statement: Be humble even after being victorious.


  1. Many people are humble after being victorious.
  2. Generally people are not humble.

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, nothing is mentioned about the nature of the people. So, I is not implicit. Also, the statement gives an advice of being humble even after being victorious. This means that generally people are not humble. So, II is implicit.

'Generally people are not humble' is not the same as 'people are not humble when victorious', so it must not be implicit.

Am I correct?

Nothing is mentioned abt, the general aspect of the people. How option two? the statement states being humble AFTER victory.
