Directions (11-15): In each question below is given a statement followed by two assumptions numbered I and II. Consider the statement and decide which of the given assumptions is implicit.

Q11. Statement: It is faster to travel by air to Delhi from Bangalore.
Assumptions:
I. Bangalore and Delhi are connected by air.
II. There are no other means of transport available to Delhi from Bangalore.

if only assumption I is implicit
if only assumption II is implicit
if either I or II is implicit
if neither I nor II is implicit
if both I and II are implicit.
Solution:

The statement advises to travel by air between the two cities. So, I is implicit. Besides, it talks of air transport being a faster means of travel. This means that other means of transport, slower than air transport, are available. So, II is not implicit.

Q12. Statement: Bank ‘A’ has announced reduction of half percentage on the interest rate on retail lending with immediate effect.
Assumptions:
I. Other banks may also reduce the retail lending rates to be in competition.
II. Bank ‘A’ may be able to attract more customers for availing retail loans.

if only assumption I is implicit
if only assumption II is implicit
if either I or II is implicit
if neither I nor II is implicit
if both I and II are implicit.
Solution:

Reducing interest rate on loans is surely a step to draw in more customers. But the implications of such a policy on other banks cannot be ascertained, as interest rate is not the only criterion to lure customers. So, only II is implicit.

Q13. Statement: Even with the increase in the number of sugar factories in India, we still continue to import sugar.
Assumptions:
I. The consumption of sugar per capital has increased in India.
II. Many of the factories are not in a position to produce sugar to their fullest capacity.

if only assumption I is implicit
if only assumption II is implicit
if either I or II is implicit
if neither I nor II is implicit
if both I and II are implicit.
Solution:

Clearly, the need to import sugar could be either due to increase in consumption or the inefficiency of the factories to produce sugar to their fullest capacity. So, either I or II is implicit.

Q14. Statement: A foreign film producer rendered his apology before Indian society for misinterpreting a part of India epic.
Assumptions:
I. Indian is very sensitive to the misinterpretation of their epic.
II. It is possible to derive wrong meaning from the epic.

if only assumption I is implicit
if only assumption II is implicit
if either I or II is implicit
if neither I nor II is implicit
if both I and II are implicit.
Solution:

From the content of the statement it is clear that both the assumption is implicit in the statement.

Q15. Statement: We must settle all the payment due to our suppliers within three working days.
Assumptions:
I. We will always have necessary funds in our account to settle the bills.
II. We are capable of verifying and clearing the bills in less than three working days.

if only assumption I is implicit
if only assumption II is implicit
if either I or II is implicit
if neither I nor II is implicit
if both I and II are implicit.
Solution:

Since the statement talks of making all payments within three days, it is evident that the company has the necessary funds and the bills can be verified and cleared within the stipulated time. So, both I and II are implicit.
