S6. Ans.(d)

S7. Ans.(d)

S11. Ans.(e)
Sol. Any advertisement highlights only the desirable qualities of the product. So, I is implicit. The ‘X’ brand has advertised its product in newspaper A. This implies that a large section of people reads advertisements in newspapers and that news-paper A too has a side circulation. So, neither II nor III is implicit.

S12. Ans.(c)
Sol. It is mentioned that the apples are so cheap that they cannot be good. This means that the prices of good apples are never too low and that very cheap apples are never good. So, neither I nor III is implicit. Assumption II clearly follows from the statement that apples are of inferior quality because they are cheap. So, it is implicit.

S13. Ans.(a)
Sol. An appeal has been made to ‘introduce’ written examination. This means that so far written examination was not conducted. So, I is implicit. II follows directly from the statement and so it is implicit. However, nothing can be deduced about the mode of selection at higher level. So, III is not implicit.
