Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

In each question below is given a statement followed by two assumptions numbered I and II. You have to consider the statement and the following assumptions and decide which of the assumptions is implicit in the statement.

Give answer

  • (A) If only assumption I is implicit
  • (B) If only assumption II is implicit
  • (C) If either I or II is implicit
  • (D) If neither I nor II is implicit
  • (E) If both I and II are implicit.


Statement: "Get rid of your past for future, get our new generation fridge at a discount in exchange of old"- An advertisement.


  1. The sales of the new fridge may increase in the coming months.
  2. People prefer to exchange future with past.

[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


Clearly, the scheme would encourage those owning an old fridge to go for a new one at a reasonable price without the hassles of disposing off the old one. So, I is implicit. Besides, an advertisement highlights that which appeals to masses and which customers crave for. So, II is also implicit.

I sentence is not assumption; it is CONCLUSION. It doesn't follow. Second statement is vague; as FUTURE & PAST words convey vague meaning. Neither assumption follows.

Option D is the correct answer. As 2 & 1 statement does not follow at all.

Option D is the correct answer.

According to me, the first one is out of knowledge nothing about sales is been said. And the second one is vague.
