Logical Reasoning - Statement and Assumption - Discussion

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: In spite of poor services, the commutators have not complained against it.


  1. Generally people do not tolerate poor services.
  2. Complaints sometimes improve services.

[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


The statement expresses an expectation of complaints from the people against poor services. So, I is implicit. But the effect of complaints cannot be deduced. So, II is not implicit.

If the meaning of commutators is the public than your assumption should be,
Generally people tolerate poor services up to some extent.
It is very difficult to correct any Indian service by complaining.

In assumption 1 it is mentioned people does not tolerate poor services means people complained against it but in statement it is clear that they did not complain.

Then how option a is correct? Please explain it.
