Statement: Sachin's mother instructed him to return home by train if it rains heavily.


  1. Sachin may not be able to decide himself if it rains heavily.
  2. The trains may ply even if it rains heavily.

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
Sachin's mother has instructed him as a matter of caution and out of care for her child, and not because Sachin himself would not be able to decide. So, I is not implicit. Besides, Sachin's mother instructs him to take to train journey in case it rains heavily. So, II is implicit.
