Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 2 (Q.No. 18)
Directions to Solve

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.

Give answer

  • (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: A sentence in the letter to the candidates called for written examination - 'You have to bear your expenses on travel etc'.


  1. If not clarified all the candidates may claim reimbursement of expenses.
  2. Many organizations reimburse expenses on travel to candidates called for written examination.

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, not mentioning the condition may provoke all the candidates to demand their claim. So, I is implicit. The condition is mentioned because some companies do reimburse the travel expenses. So, II is also implicit.

It is clearly mentioned that people are responsible for their own travel expenses. So, 1st assumption is wrong.
For 2nd statement, there is nothing mentioned about any organisations for reimbursement in the main statement.
So, it can be true or false. There is no certainty. So, neither of them is implicit.

Am I right?

I think the correct answer should be 'A' because in the 2nd option 'many' is extreme.

If it was 'some' we would consider it.

Correct me, If I am wrong.

According to me, the answer would be B option only, Because the option A is out of the fact given above here.

'You have to bear your expenses on travel etc' it is clearly stated that you have to bear your own expense. None of the above is right.

But then how can assumption 2 be implicit?

As nowhere it is stated about organisations reimbursing candidates.

Bear the expense means no reimbursement so only B is right.

Not mentioning the condition may provoke ALL the candidates to demand" is not right.

But "may provoke SOME candidates" is a better implication.
