Section 2: Assumptions
An assumption is something which is presumed or taken for granted. When a person says, “I will see you tomorrow”, it is taken for granted that they will be around tomorrow, and that they will not have last-minute plans which prevent them from seeing you tomorrow.
In this section, you will be provided with a number of statements. Each statement will be followed by a series of proposed assumptions. You must decide which assumptions are logically justified based on the evidence in the statement. If you think that the assumption is taken for granted in the statement, and is therefore logically justified, select Assumption made. If you think that the assumption is not taken for granted in the statement, and is not therefore logically justified, select Assumption not made. Remember to judge each question individually and base your responses on the statements provided.
