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: 'Double your money in five months.' - An advertisement.


  1. The assurance is not genuine.
  2. People want their money to grow.

[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 B


The truth or falsity of the promise made in the statement cannot be judged. So, I is not implicit. Since the concerned firm advertises with the assurance that money can be doubled quickly by investing with it, so II is implicit.

Can advertisement be taken as an assurance? advertisements are just propagation. It doesn't need to be genuine.

Advertisement may or may not be genuine and also every human may differ some may want no money so as per me both assumptions are wrong.

It should be (D). As the statement doesn't imply that people are interested in this advertisement.

The answer should be (d).

The answer should be D. You can't judge that all people want their money to grow by considering an advertisement. The advertisement is not a replica of people's choices.

Option 1 is not implicit. Coming to the option 2 the statement doesn't express the mindset of the people whether they want to grow their money or not. So 2 is also not implicit.

Statement 2 doesn't express mindset of people. I think option D is the answer.
