Statement: All the employees are notified that the organisation will provide transport facilities at half cost from the nearby railway station to the office except those who have been provided with travelling allowance.

Assumptions:

1. Most of the employees will travel by the office transport.
2. Those who are provided with travelling allowance will not read such notice.

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
Explanation:
The facility given by the office shall be an added privilege and many employees will avail of the same. So, I is implicit. Also, the statement 'All the employees are notified.....' implies that the notice is for all the employees. So, II is not implicit.

How do you know which one is more favourable between the transport subsidy and the allowance to come to a conclusion that more people will opt for option 1?

1 is absolutely correct because few employees not benfited by traveling alowance not all thats why most of the people will opt for half fare.

No. I is not implicit. We know nothing about employees, nothing about distance and transport means. People are too complicated to just say most of them will travel by the office transport. There are just many possibilities.

How do I know people who work in company stay near by the station or on the route?
