Statement: "Present day education is in shambles and the country is going to the dogs."

Assumptions:

1. A good education system is essential for the well-being of a nation.
2. A good education alone is sufficient for the well-being of a nation.

 [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

Explanation:

Clearly, the statement mentions the degradation of the country with the disruption of the education system. So, I is implicit, However, it does not mean that education alone is sufficient and no other factor is responsible for the well being of the nation. So, II is not implicit.
