Statement and Assumptions
Statement: Provide mid-day meals to the children in primary schools to increase the number of students attending schools.
I. Mid-day meals will attract the children to the schools.
II. Those children who are otherwise deprived of good food will attend the schools.
|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.|
(i) VALID: Root Cause. It must have been assumed that the scheme will attract the students, that is why it is proposed to be implemented.
(ii) INVALID: Not related to the statement. There is no mention of “good food” in the statement. It says the children who are otherwise deprived of good food, who might be getting ordinary food to eat, would attend the school. There is no proof of such thought in the statement.
