Statement: "A visit of school children to forest to widen their knowledge of natural resources has been arranged." - A notice in the school.


  1. Forests are full of natural resources.
  2. Children are likely to learn from their interaction with the new environment.

[A]. Only assumption I is implicit
[B]. Only assumption II is implicit
[C]. Either I or II is implicit
[D]. Neither I nor II is implicit
[E]. Both I and II are implicit

Answer: Option E


The forests shall be visited to increase the knowledge of natural resources. This means that forests abound in natural resources. So, I is implicit. The children are being taken to forests to help them learn more practically. So, II is also implicit.
