Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 1

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
‘Use our handsets once and you will be amazed by its voice clarity and impeccable sound ’ – An advertisement of mobile manufacturer AlGee.
Assumptions: 
I. The advertisement will have no effect on the people and they will continue using their existing handsets.
II. People want voice clarity and good sound in their mobile handsets.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 1

The advertising company cannot possibly move on the assumption that it will have no effect on people. Thus, I am ruled out. II is a valid assumption as an advertisement only publicizes the characteristic of the product which its potential customers want to see in that product.
 

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 2

Directions: In this 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.
Statement:
‘ Profitability is a necessary condition for existence and a means to more important ends, but it is not the end in itself for many of the visionary companies. Profit is like oxygen, food, water and blood for the body; they are not the point of life, but without them, there is no life.’ – Built to Last (Book).
Assumptions: 
I. Profitability is absolutely essential for the existence of even visionary companies.
II. One cannot be a visionary company if their main motive is profitability.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 2

Only I is a valid assumption primarily because of two reasons. First, the author tacitly states the same in the first line ‘Profitability is a necessary condition for existence . . .’. Second, since the author has compared profitability to oxygen, food, water and blood, his clear assumption is that it is extremely essential for the existence of visionary companies. II however is not an assumption of the statement since it clearly states ‘. . . but not an end in itself for many of the visionary companies’.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 3

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
One should make notes from the newspaper everyday for an efficient preparation of current affairs.
Assumptions: 
I. One cannot prepare for current affairs efficiently without reading newspapers.
II. Making notes helps in an efficient preparation of current affairs.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 3

It is nowhere implied that making notes from the newspaper is the only way for efficiently preparing for current affairs. Thus, I am ruled out. II is a clear assumption of the author.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 4

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
Today’s generation has forgotten their family values.
Assumptions: 
I. The previous generation(s) had their family values intact.
II. The definition of family values changes from generation to generation.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 4

I is a clear assumption from the statement. When the author says that today’s generation has forgotten their family values, he implies that this was not the case with the previous generations and they had their family values intact. II involves outside information, and is more of an argument against the original statement of the author, and is certainly not an assumption of the author. Thus, II doesn’t follow.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 5

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
‘Use our trial products once before using XYZ’s products’ – An advertisement of ABC company.
Assumptions: 
I. People will respond to such advertisements.
II. People like using trial products before buying them.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 5

Both the assumptions are valid. Since the company has published (or telecasted) a particular advertisement, their assumption is that people will respond to such advertisements. Otherwise, they would not have gone ahead with that advertisement. Similarly, since ABC company is motivating potential consumers to use their trial products, the clear assumption is that people do like using trial products before making the purchase.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 6

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
People do not know what they want until you show it to them.
Assumptions: 
I. People are stupid.
II. A great inventor always trusts his instincts over market research.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 6

I is vague and is an extreme assumption. II, at best, is only an example or illustration of the statement. It’s nowhere mentioned, or implied, that the statement is primarily regarding inventors and not others.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 7

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement: Unemployment allowance should be given to all unemployed Indian youth above 18 years of age. 
Assumptions: I. There are unemployed youth in India who needs monetary support. 
II. The government has sufficient funds to provide allowance to all unemployed youth. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 7

I directly follows from the statement and so is implicit. Also, the statement is a suggestion and does not tell about a government policy or its position of funds. So, II is not implicit.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 8

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
‘Smoking is injurious to health’ – A statutory warning printed on a cigarette box.
Assumptions: 
I. The warning will have a negative effect on the smoking habits of the people buying the product.
II. People will not pay heed to such notices.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 8

When such a warning is printed on a cigarette box (though only to abide by the law!) the assumption is clearly that it will have a negative effect on smoking habits of the people. Thus, it is a valid assumption. II cannot be an assumption as then such a notice would not have been printed on the cigarette boxes, and even the Government would not have asked the cigarette companies to do so.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 9

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
Technology has not only bridged gaps but has also created new ones.
Assumptions:
I. Life without modern technology was much better.
II. Technology should be used strictly on a limited basis.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 9

Both the given statements, at best, are conclusions of the statement that technology has created new gaps, while at the same time bridging old ones. They’re not valid assumptions.

Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 10

Directions: In this 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. 
Statement:
‘I do not think the use or misuse of expensive gadgets, modern technology and the likes defines our generation. On the other hand, we are also intellectually superior than our previous generations as we’re more receptive to change, we like experimenting and the gadgets and technology are just the culmination of such traits.’– Mr Prakash during a debate on ‘Whether we control technology or the technology controls us’.
Assumptions: 
I. Being receptive to change and continuous experimentation leads to intellectual superiority.
II. The use of expensive gadgets leads to intellectual superiority.

Detailed Solution for Test: Statement And Assumptions - Question 10

Mr Prakash is clearly connecting ‘being receptive to change’ and ‘being intellectually superior’ since he uses the words ‘as’ to connect these two traits (as we’re more receptive to change). Thus, it is a valid assumption. However, no connection or co-relation has been shown between use of gadgets and intellectual superiority. Thus, II is not an assumption in this statement.
