Q1: Statement: "The bridge was built at the cost of Rs. 128 crores and even civil bus service is not utilizing it, what a pity to see it grossly underutilized." - A citizen's view on a new flyover linking east and west sides of a suburb. Assumptions:
  1. The building of such bridges does not serve any public objective.
  2. There has to be some accountability and utility of money spent on public projects.

A Neither I nor II is implicit

B Only assumption II is implicit

C Either I or II is implicit

D Only assumption I is implicit

E Both I and II are implicit

ANS:B - Only assumption II is implicit

Explanation: Clearly, the statement expresses grave concern over a newly-built flyover not being utilized by public. This implies that such projects need to be taken up only after working out their utility and that the huge expenditure incurred on building such structures is worthwhile only if they prove useful for the public. Thus, only II is implicit.
