Direction: In each question below is given a statement followed by three assumptions numbered I, II and III. You have to consider the following assumption and decide which of the assumption is implicit in the given statement.
Statement: Soon, your health-related confusion between maida and whole wheat (atta) food items will be over. Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has asked food companies to label atta as 'whole wheat flour' and maida as 'refined wheat flour' by April 30.
I. The order will clear confusion among products that are often labeled as just 'wheat flour' with no distinction between the maida or atta products.
II. The order is aimed at bringing more clarity on the product labelling as companies use these nomenclatures to make health claims about their products like packaged atta, bread and biscuits.
III. Currently, packaged food companies use 'wheat flour' as general nomenclature for atta and maida on product labels.
Correct Answer : d ) None is implicitExplanation :
In statement assumptions questions we have to first identify the subject who is doing the action. Here, FSSAI is the main subject who is making guidelines thus, all the assumptions are made by only FSSAI regarding the statement.
As, products that are often labeled as just 'wheat flour' create confusion among the customers so, FSSAI decision to mandate companies to mention atta as 'whole wheat flour' and maida as 'refined wheat flour' is correct considering the assumption. So, Assumption I is implicit in the statements.
As the need of mandating the naming of products is because of food companies creating confusion using the same name for maida and atta. Although assumption II may be relevant but cannot be considered for making the statement. So, Assumption II is not implicit in the statements.
As, Currently, packaged food companies are not using the distinct terms for atta and maida, so FSSAI have taken the measures. Thus, we can say that Assumption III is implicit in the statements.
Hence, (e) is the correct answer.
