IDENTIFYING ASSUMPTIONS & CONCLUSIONS #1
 
Statement: “If you trouble me, I will slap you.”
– A mother warns her child.
 
Assumptions:
I. With the warning, the child may stop troubling her.
II. All children are basically naughty.
 
a. Either I or II is implicit
b. Only assumption II is implicit
c. Neither I nor II is implicit
d. Both I and II are implicit
e. Only assumption I is implicit

 

CORRECT ANSWER: e. Only assumption I is implicit

 

The mother warns her child with the expectation that he would stop troubling her. So, I is implicit. The general nature of children cannot be derived from the statement. So, II is not implicit.
