Q1: Statement: It is desirable to put the child in school at the age of 5 or so. Assumptions:
  1. At that age the child reaches appropriate level of development and is ready to learn.
  2. The schools do not admit children after six years of age.

A Either I or II is implicit

B Only assumption II is implicit

C Only assumption I is implicit

D Both I and II are implicit

E Neither I nor II is implicit

ANS:A - Only assumption I is implicit

Since the statement talks of putting the child in school at the age of 5, it means that the child is mentally prepared for the same at this age. So, I is implicit. But nothing about admission after 6 years of age is mentioned in the statement. So, II is not implicit.
