Statement: "According to me, you should get your child examined by a specialist doctor." - A tells B.

Assumptions:

  1. Specialist doctors are able to diagnose better than ordinary doctors.
  2. B will certainly not agree with A's advice.

[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 A

Explanation:

The advice particularly mentions 'a specialist doctor' and not simply 'doctor'. So, I is implicit, B's response to A's advice cannot be deduced from the given statement. So, II is not implicit.
