Statement: "Blue tie would help us identify our staff from others." - A suggestion in a company.

Assumptions:

1. The company needs to identify its staff.
2. Blue tie is the latest fashion.

 [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

Explanation:

Clearly, the suggestion is given for providing a method of identification. This means that the staff needs to be identified. So, I is implicit. The statement does not mention anything about the fashion. So, II is not implicit.
