Top 100+ Statement and Assumption Online Test - 1

Question: 1

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.
Statement :
In case of any difficulty about this case, you may contact our company's lawyer.
Assumptions :
I. Each company has a lawyer of its own.
II. The company's lawyer is thoroughly briefed about this case.

(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 and

(E) if both I and II are implicit

Ans: B

No decision can be made regarding other companies. So, I is not implicit. Since one is advised to contact the company's lawyer in case of any problem, it means that the lawyer is fully acquainted with the case. So, II is implicit.

Question: 2

Statement :
The organization should promote employees on the basis of merit alone and not on the basis of length of service or seniority.
Assumptions :
I. Length of service or seniority does not alone reflect merit of an employee.
II. It is possible to determine and measure merit of an employee.

(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 and

(E) if both I and II are implicit

Ans: E

The statement stresses on the need to award promotion to a person who has been displaying remarkable talent and performing extraordinary for the organisation rather than the one who has been working steadily for the organisation since long. Thus, length of service does not alone prove a man worthy. His talent and his performance are the criteria to be considered. So, both I and II are implicit.

Question: 3

Statement :
The company has the right to reject any application form without furnishing any reason while sorting the list of candidates for interview. A condition mentioned in the employment notice.
Assumptions :
I. It is desirable to call only eligible candidates for interview.
II. The company believes in following impartial practice in all its functions.

(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 and

(E) if both I and II are implicit

Ans: A

Since the statement talks of the company short listing the candidates to be called for interview, so I is implicit. However, nothing can be deduced about whether the company would make a partial or fair selection of candidates. So, II is implicit.

Question: 4

Statement :
Read this book to get detailed and most comprehensive information on this issue.
Assumptions :
I. The person who wants this information can read.
II. There are other books available on this issue.

(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 and

(E) if both I and II are implicit

Ans: E

Clearly, I directly follows from the statement. So, I is implicit. Also, according to the statement, this particular book gives most comprehensive information on the issue. So, it can be assumed that other books are also available on this topic. Thus, II is also implicit.

Question: 5

Statement :
Imprisonment for 27 years made Nelson Mandela, the President.
Assumptions :
I. Only who will be imprisoned for 27 years will become the President.

(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 and

(E) if both I and II are implicit

Ans: D

The statement implies that it was not literally imprisonment, but Nelson Mandela's dedicated service to the nation and his struggle for freedom despite various hardships that won him the desired public appeal to be elected the President. So, neither I nor II is implicit.
