Statement: Government aided schools should have uniformity in charging various fees.


  1. The Government's subsidy comes from the money collected by way of taxes from people.
  2. The Government while giving subsidy may have stipulated certain uniform conditions regarding fees.

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
Nothing about the source of Government's subsidy can be deduced from the statement. So, I is not implicit. However, II follows from the statement and so it is implicit.
