Only Assumption II is implicit. Assumption I is clearly explicit because of the word "All" which generalizes that all, not "various" companies will show their performance at the end of financial year.

How come 2?

Since the performance data of companies will be available at the end and not now.

It's clear why 1st assumption is correct?

The statement give no specific at to which companies, but stated that the end of the financial year is the best moment to review various companies performance.

(So If Person A chose companies X, Y and Z. And at the same time Person B chose F, G and H. Then all companies must take such review at the end of the year).

The second assumption is implicit because you can look at the performance of various companies only if the requisite data is available.

The first assumption even I don't get. I was under the impression that just because some companies do it, you can't generalize all companies doing the same.

How can assumption II be implicit?

The performance of data of various companies is available but they may or may not reveal to others.

Both statements are false because it does not mean that company will reveal its performance to every body and I is already not assume because all has came instead of various.

My tutor told me where every word is used than that sentence has a negative meaning. So ths conclusion doesnt follow.

I completely agree with the scientist it does not say all in the statement so Statement I doesnot follow.

The scientist said:   1 decade ago
it is cystal clear from the above question that the 2nd assumption follows but how the 1 statement follows because it has been said that end of the financial year is the ideal time to take the analysis of "various comanies" not all
