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: Unemployment allowance should be given to all unemployed Indian youth above 18 years of age.


  1. There are unemployed youth in India who needs monetary support.
  2. The government has sufficient funds to provide allowance to all unemployed youth.

[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 A


I directly follows from the statement and so is implicit. Also, the statement is a suggestion and does not tell about a government policy or its position of funds. So, II is not implicit.

How could we assue that First assumption is implicit because in the statement there is no information about the need of money support.......and if this is right then everyone need money so how could it implicit?

What is implicit statement ?

What does implicit stand for here?

Inderpreet Singh said: (May 8, 2013)  
Implicit stand for correctness. Or it actually says that this statement is correct.

How to solve these problems? Please say to me anyone.

Think Logically, Implicit statement means a hidden statement, in the passage, which is related to it.

Well for now I can't explain more. Just think, and remember implicit meaning.

Assumption 2 can be implicit because Government can provide unemployment allowance only when it has sufficient funds.

Sasha said: (Mar 5, 2015)  
If the govt thinks it should provide unemployment allowance it means it has sufficient funds, right?

Provide unemployment allowance only to those whose survival for life is difficult and on the basis of such other criteria gov can decide who is eligible and who is not?

How it will be implicit because in statement no information about money. So how it will be?

Dear Sir,

Actually the answer is D instead of A, because statement said youth above 18 years of age, but in A is mentioned for all the youth (not in criteria).

Hence Answer is D.

But implicit I covers all unemployed not above 18 confusion.

Avatansh said: (Jan 15, 2016)  
@All correct answer A.

Implicit statement is that one which shows righteousness of statement, for say in this example someone is suggesting the unemployment allowance.

So he must have the rough idea of unemployed youth in this country that's why he is suggesting, but about government fund he didn't know any thing so 2nd one is not true.

But if government doesn't have fund then they won't propose the idea of giving the fund to youth so according to me it should be B.

Animesh said: (Mar 9, 2016)  
Hi all, I didn't find any logic to say A is implicit. Can anyone explain.

As child labour is illegal so who will be employed?

Youth only and most of the working youth facing unemployment according to their qualification is 18+ only. So the answer will be A. And the ability of govt to pay is not given in statement so can't be assumed in conclusion.

Statement 2 is not implicit because it mentions "The government has sufficient funds to provide an allowance to all unemployed youth" Here the term to be taken note of is all unemployed youth. While the statement talks about funds for unemployed youth above 18.

Sandy said: (Dec 15, 2016)  
Yes, 1 is implicit.

Soumya Ranjan Nayak said: (Jul 18, 2017)  
Answer should be "D".

In the statement: All unemployed youth above 18 given, but in assumption 1: needy youth.

Horrendous said: (May 25, 2019)  
The answer should be D because When the government has sufficient fund and feels to assist all youth, only then it can declare this.

Why 2 assumption isn't implicit?

Chuchu said: (Nov 12, 2019)
