1). c)
2). c)
3). a)
4). e)
5). b)
S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. I is implicit because only then does the direction to walk make sense. II is not implicit as the statement makes no distinction between the members of the office and the visitors.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.I is not implicit because of the word “all”. II is implicit because only then does the appeal to switch over make sense.

S8. Ans.(e)
Sol. The comparison is possible only when I is assumed. Same for II.

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. I is implicit because of the use of “any” in the statement. II is not implicit. It is possible that the problem can be solved even later. The instruction to contact “immediately” is only for the sake of convenience of the customer.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. I would be implicit if the statement said “Use only our medicine…”. Again, the instruction to use is only of an advisory nature, not mandatory. Hence II is not implicit.
