Discussion Forum : Statement and Assumption - Section 3 (Q.No. 39)
Directions to Solve

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: An announcement: Passengers in their own interest are advised to fasten their seat belts while seated in the trolley of the ropeway.


  1. People are always careful about their own safety.
  2. Unless advised, passengers might not use the seat belts.

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
The stress on 'in their own interest' in the statement indicates that people should use seat belts for their own safety. So, I is implicit. Besides, the announcement has been made to caution passengers to be careful if they want to enjoy a safe ride. So, II is also implicit.

I agree with you @Miya, here they specifically described that people don't care about their safety or cared about it.

I don't think "I" is implicit as the statement does not mention are careful about their own safety. The statement has the word "passengers in their own interest are advised".

Seeing as the announcement is needed, then I feel that it implies that passengers are not careful about their own safety, therefore, requiring an announcement.
