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

Assumptions:

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

Explanation:

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.

 Jaydev said: (Oct 6, 2014) 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.

 Vinay said: (Sep 17, 2016) Option D is the correct answer. As 2 & 1 statement does not follow at all.

 Vinay said: (May 8, 2017) 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.

 Ayushman said: (Sep 3, 2019) D is the correct answer.
