Statement: World Health Organisation has decided to double its assistance to various health programmes in India as per-capita expenditure on health in India is very low compared to many other countries.

Assumptions:

  1. The enhanced assistance may substantially increase the per-capita expenditure on health in India and bring it on par with other countries.
  2. The Government funding is less than adequate to provide medical facilities in India.

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:
The fact that WHO has extended its assistance to India implies that government funding here is not adequate. So, II is implicit. Besides, WHO has decided to provide assistance to health programmes in India keeping in mind the considerably low per-capita expenditure on health. So, I is also implicit.

I think per capita expenditure on health by the government doesnt gets increased by any assistance.

Hence I think only assumption II is correct since the funding (per capita expenditure on health) is low.

In the question, nothing is mentioned about government funding.

And how is it directly assumed that the WHO is funding based on the government's adequate fund?

WHO might be funding for any other reason as mentioned in the assumption 1 or something else.

So I feel only assumption 1 is implicit.
