Statement: "The function will start at 3 P.M. You are requested to take your seats before 3 P.M." - Last sentence in an invitation card.


  1. If the invitee is not in his seat before 3 P.M., the function will not start.
  2. Function will start as scheduled.

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
It is mentioned that the function will start at 3 RM. and not that the invitees will be waited for. So, I is not implicit and only II is implicit.

II is explicit, not implicit. This sort of loose language is abused all over the test.
