Statement: The government has decided to hold the employers responsible for deducting tax at source for all its employees.

Only assumption II is implicit
Either I or II is implicit
Neither I nor II is implicit

Can we use our knowledge while reading the statement? Or should we take everything granted given in the statement and proceed?

Please tell me to get the solution.
