Statement: The school authorities have decided to increase the number of students in each classroom to seventy from the next academic session to bridge the gap between the income and the expenditure to a large extent.

Assumptions:

  1. The income generated by way of fees of the additional students will be sufficient enough to bridge the gap.
  2. The school will get all the additional students in each class from the next academic session.

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
Explanation:
Clearly, increasing the number of children in each class would increase the income and reduce the expenditure per child. But the response to the school's decision cannot be deduced. So, only I is implicit.

The gap between income and expenditureis fill only when students coming. So, E is the correct option.

Why not option E?

Mansi said:   6 years ago
I also agree with the option E because it is clearly mentioned that this rule will be implemented from next academic session.

If the school has decided to increase the number of students in each classroom then option II should also be implicit as the school will get additional students in each class if they increase the number of students.

Its clearly written that they have decided. So it must be E. Otherwise it would be written proposed.
