Statement: In spite of less than normal rainfall in the catchment areas during the first two months of monsoon of the lakes supplying water to the city the authority has not yet affected any cut in the water supply to the city.

Assumptions:

  1. The rainfall during the remaining part of the monsoon may be adequate for normal water supply.
  2. The present water level of the lakes supplying water to the city may be adequate for normal supply.

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
Explanation:
The statement clearly indicates that at present the water level of the lakes is adequate. There is nothing of a shortage to induce a cut in water supply and still there is time to wait and watch the performance of rains during the remaining monsoon period. So, both I and II are implicit.

We can't make the assumption that it would be adequate for the rest of the year, I think the answer is B.
