# Statement Assumptions Practice Quiz

### Introduction

Statement Assumptions are problems in which a statement is given in the question and it is followed by two or more assumptions. For the correct answer, the student needs to assess the given statement and decide which of the given assumption is implicit to the statement in the question above.
Reasoning Ability is an integral part of several competitive exams around the world. Reasoning Ability is primarily designed to measure a person’s ability to draw logical conclusions based on statements or arguments, and to identify the strengths and weaknesses of those arguments.
A Statement is something that is said or written which gives information in a formal or definite way. Also, A statement is an official or formal announcement that is issued on a particular occasion. An Assumption is an unstated premise that supports the conclusion. Both premise and assumption are unquestionable facts but the assumption, unlike the premise, is not explicitly stated and needs to be deciphered. Assumption is something that is taken for granted in the context of a statement. Example: If you want your advertisement to reach more people, give it in newspaper Z,” B tells A. In this the assumption is Newspaper Z has a much wider circulation. In the Statement Assumptions Practice Quiz, every question includes a statement followed by assumptions, which have to be tested for whether they are implied in the given statement or not.
