Statement: An advertisement: If you want to follow the footprints of an ideal leader, wear 'X' brand of shoes.

Assumptions:

1. Most people like to become ideal leaders.
2. One can't become ideal leader unless one wears X brand of shoes.

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
Explanation:
Clearly, the advertisement mentioned here is merely a catchy slogan, and attempt has been made to touch the deep desire of the masses to draw their attention towards the product. So, only I is implicit.

How can you justify that most of the people want to become an ideal leader without any mention in a statement by just seeing a catchy slogan? I feel that option D is apt.

If the answer is Most than I would assume there is some data/survey done to indicate that most people want to be leaders.

None of that is specified or mentioned so I don't see how the answer is Most without clear stats from all people.

I. Is implied.

"If you want to follow the footprints of an ideal leader, wear X brand of shoes".

Well, they wouldn't advertise or even make products that majority of people wouldn't want. And besides, it said MOST people not ANYBODY.

Sorry, I'm new here, but does this actually involve some logical reasoning? Because as far as I know, there was nothing indicating that the advertisement contained false information. And nothing implied that anybody would wan't to be an ideal leader. Is this related to it being an advertisement?
