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

Assumptions:

  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
Explanation:
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.
