Statement: The party president has directed that no member of the party will give press briefing or interviews to governments and private T.V. channels about the discussion in scheduled meeting of the party.

Assumptions:

1. Party members will observe this directive of the president.
2. The general public will not come to know about the happenings in the scheduled meeting of the party.

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:
Clearly, the party president lays down the policies for its members. So, I is implicit. Also, when no party member would publicly reveal the happenings in the meeting, nobody will come to know. So, II is also implicit.

The 2nd Statement shouldn't be an inference,

How can we know that the general public will not know the happening?
