Statement: "I would like to study the impact of pay revision on job satisfaction of employees." - A tells B.


  1. Job satisfaction can be measured.
  2. A has necessary competence to undertake such study.

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
Answer: Option
Clearly, A wishes to study the degree of effect of pay revision on job satisfaction of employees. This means that job satisfaction can be measured and A is capable of making such a study. So, both I and II are implicit.

To study something does not mean its measurable. There are things that can not be measured eg. The study to find out what split an atom goes through - quantum mechanics.

A would like to does not mean he is competent to do it.
