  2. Complaints sometimes improve services.

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

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.

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.
