Statement and Assumptions

Question
20 out of 30
 

Statement: Cases of food poisoning due to consumption of liquor are increasing in rural areas.

Assumptions:

I. Percentage of people consuming liquor is more in rural areas.

II. There are many unauthorized spurious liquor shops in the rural areas.



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.

Ans. D

(i) INVALID: Not directly related to statement. Since the statement shows increase in the number of cases of food poisoning, the cause should also show an increment. Large number of people cannot justify the increase in cases. The number could have been large before also.

(ii) INVALID: Not directly related to statement. Again many shops cannot justify the increase in the cases of food poisoning. The number of shops could have been many before also.
