Statement and Assumptions

Question
8 out of 30
 

Statement: Traffic jams on most of the roads in the city have become a regular feature during monsoon.

Assumptions:

I. Material used for road construction cannot withstand the fury of monsoon resulting into innumerable pot holes on the roads.

II. Number of vehicles coming on the road is much more in monsoon as compared to other seasons.



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 related to the statement. The statement talks about traffic jams on roads. There is no mention about the cause of the traffic jams. The material resulting in the potholes on roads can be a cause. But this assumption cannot be accepted for sure as there is no mention about it in the statement.

(ii) INVALID: Not related to the statement. The assumption shows the comparison of monsoons with other seasons. There is no such proof in the statement. Hence, the assumption cannot be accepted.
