Q1: Statement: Safety and health practices in many Indian companies are well below the international standards. Assumptions:
  1. International standards of health and safety are ideal and unrealistic.
  2. Indian organizations do not consider safety and health management as their prime social responsibility.

A Neither I nor II is implicit

B Only assumption II is implicit

C Only assumption I is implicit

D Both I and II are implicit

E Either I or II is implicit

ANS:B - Only assumption II is implicit

Explanation: The statement talks about the safety and health practices in Indian companies being far below international standards. It is clearly a criticism of Indian organizations not paying considerable attention to these aspects. So, II is implicit. The international standards demand perfection and are, in no way, non-achievable. So, I is not implicit.
