  2. B listens to As advice.

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

Here in the second statement, a conviction is shown that B listens to A's advice which may not be true always.

If it would have been written, B may listen to his advice, both would have been right.

Someone gives advice only if he is confident that candidate will listen to the advice, so second is implicit.

It's important that what Author is saying/thinks and not important what we understood. Its clear that A is Telling to B because A thinks Y provides good education. So I am implicit.

It is not clear whether Institute Y provides good Accounts education. It might be possible that only Institute Y provides Accounts education in their (A & B) city or town, hence Institute Y is the only place to study Accounts education.
