Explanation for Answers

  1. The word ‘Like a mad man’ shows that either a person is really mad or he is not mad but acted like a mad. So, either I or II is implicit.
  2. It follows from the statement, that books on this topic were available before also but they were not ‘lucid’. So, I is implicit. But a general comment as II cannot be made from the given statement. So, II is not implicit.
  3. The statement talks of ‘most people’ and not ‘all’. So, I is not necessarily true. The I is not implicit. The condition, if one does not stop smoking, cannot be deduction from the statement. So, II is also not implicit.
  4. Clearly, computer education can be started at the school level only if it is easy. I is implicit. In the statement, nothing is mentioned about the link between job and computer education. So, II is not implicit.
  5. The word ‘If’ in the statement shows that B may or may not want to publicise his products. So, I is not implicit. It is advised that advertisements be given in newspaper X. This means X will help advertise ‘better .e., it has wider circulation. So, II is implicit.
