Q) Of all the newspapers published in India `The Hindu’ has the largest number of readers.
Assumption I: The volume of readership of all newspapers in India is known.
Assumption II: No newspaper in India other than ‘The Hindu’ has a large readership.

Options:
A)assumption I is implicit
B) assumption II is implicit,
C) both I and II are implicit
D) neither of them is implicit.

Answer

A) assumption I is implicit | Explanation:Assumption I is implicit because unless we know the volume of readership of all newspapers we can not conclude about the popularity of a particular newspaper. Here the study is comparative in nature so we can not say on the basis of only this meager information that other newspapers has less number of readers. Thus assumption II is not implicit.
