Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

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: "As there is a great demand, every person seeking tickets of the programme will be given only five tickets."


  1. The organizers are not keen on selling the tickets.
  2. No one is interested in getting more than five tickets.

[A]. Only assumption I is implicit
[B]. Only assumption II is implicit
[C]. Either I or II is implicit
[D]. Neither I nor II is implicit
[E]. Both I and II are implicit

Answer: Option D


Clearly, the organisers are adopting this policy not to reduce the sale but to cope up with great demand so that everyone can get the ticket. So, I is not implicit. Also, due to great demand, the maximum number of tickets one person can get has been reduced to five. So, II is also not implicit.

Any organizer's interest to sell ticket (or) participant/audience getting more tickets is not related to demand of show.

The statement has said nothing about the interest of people. However from the word great demand we can assume that people are interested in purchasing more number of tickets. I guess only option A is correct.
