Old type questions: Statement Assumption in CET
What are Assumption(s) in a Situation (Statement)?
All theories and statements are based on certain assumptions. We say something, comment on certain things on the basis of certain assumptions. Sometimes assumptions are obvious, sometimes they are not. If I make a statement “if you are taking guidance CETking coaching, your chance of getting through CET exam is high”, what assumption you can make from this statement? CETKing coaching institute is providing reasonable guidance to its students. This is a valid assumption.

How to Make Assumptions?
1. Pay attention to the key words, phrases etc.
2. Try to differentiate between implication and assumption. Implication means you are deriving some conclusion from the statement and assumption is something on which statement is based, which is assumed, supposed and taken for granted.
3. Don’t assume information unless you see it in the statement.

Situation 1
Statement “Join our ‘Feel Good’ health center and see the effects on your beauty in just 10 days”. -An
advertisement of a health center.
Assumptions
I. Youngsters want to look beautiful.
II. People like to be considered beautiful.

The statement does not mention youngsters. This is an advertisement for people of all ages. So, assumption I is not implicit. The purpose of the advertisement is to lure people, hence the assumption behind the statement is that people like to be considered beautiful. So, assumption II is implicit. If any direction or instruction or order is given by a person on higher post to his/her subordinates or sub-workers or to the people working under, then it is generally assumed that the people or the subordinates will obey that instruction or direction or order. Hence, any assumption against this will not be implicit.

Situation 2
Statement “Complete this project on water management by tomorrow”. Senior officer to his subordinate.
Assumptions
I. The subordinate will comply with the orders of his senior.
II. The subordinate will not complete the project by tomorrow.
Assumption I is implicit. If the senior officer had not assumed that his subordinate would comply, he would not have asked him to do the job. Assumption II is just the opposite and hence not implicit.

Situation 3
Statement- Government has announced a special policy on eradication of pneumonia from India.
Assumptions
I. The policy will lower down the cases of pneumonia.
II. The policy will not be implemented recently.

Assumption I is implicit. The assumption behind the policy is that it will lower and further eradicate pneumonia from India. Assumption II is not implicit as it is against the statement. If the policy is not implemented recently, it will be of little benefit to the people.

Statement The CEO instructed his secretary to complete the data by tomorrow.
Assumptions
I. The secretary cannot do the work.
II. The secretary will give the complete work.

Assumption I is not implicit as the CEO has instructed his secretary to complete the work assuming that he will finish it. He can finish the work only if he knows how to do it. Hence, only assumption II is implicit.

Situation 5
Statement We should go for financial inclusion.
Assumptions
I. This is the only way to ensure economic equality.
II. This will help in strengthening the conditions of the rural people.
Clearly, assumption I is not implicit due to use of the word ‘only’. There can be other ways also to ensure economic equality. II is a right assumption.
