Statement: "In the recently imposed war, global public opinion was dishonoured by the economically strong and scientifically advanced superpower."

Assumptions:

  1. Superpowers need not take any heed of global public opinion.
  2. Global public opinion must have been against the imposition of war.

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:
Since discard of public opinion has invited concern, it means that superpowers too are expected to heed public opinion. So, I is not implicit. Also, the statement mentions that war has been imposed and public opinion dishonoured. This implies that global public opinion was against the war. So, II is implicit.
