Only assumption II is implicit
Either I or II is implicit
Neither I nor II is implicit
Both I and II are implicit

I think as option 1 contains "may" in it, so A should be the right answer.

Retired people cannot do a tough job so I think that assumption 1 is true >> if they did we surely would hire them. Don't you think so?

Why I do not understand? Can anyone explain?

I think both are implied here because both statements strengthen the conclusion that retired people should not be appointed as arguments.
