The Cricket Board has long recognized John's potential as a leader of the team. However, his on-field temper has always been a matter of concern for them since his junior days.

While this aggression has filled stadia with die-hard fans. it has taken a toll on his own batting. Until recently, it appeared that he found it difficult to convert his aggression into big scores. Over the past three seasons though. that picture of John has been replaced by a cerebral, calculative and successful batsman-captain. After many years, it appears that the team has finally found a complete captain.

Which of the following statements can be logically inferred from the above paragraph?

  1. Even as a junior cricketer, John was considered a good captain.
  2. Finding a complete captain is a challenge.
  3. Fans and the Cricket Board have differing views on what they want in a captain.
  4. Over the past three seasons John has accumulated big scores.

 

  1.  (i), (ii) and (iii) only
  2.  (iii) and (iv) only
  3.  (ii) and (iv) only
  4.  (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv)

(i) Even as a junior cricketer, John was considered a good captain.

    There is no information whether John is a captain when he was in the junior team.

(ii) Finding a complete captain is a challenge.

     By reading the above line

The Cricket Board has long recognized John’s potential as a leader of the team

    We can infer this statement.

(iii) Fans and the Cricket Board have differing views on what they want in a captain.

      We can't infer this statement by reading the above paragraph.

      There is no information about whether the fans and the Cricket Board are having different views on what they want in their captain.

(iv) Over the past three seasons, John has accumulated big scores.

      After reading this line  -- 

      Over the past three seasons though, that picture of John has been replaced by a
cerebral, calculative and successful batsman-captain.

we can easily infer this statement.

Hence, option ii) and iv) are the desirable options

Answer (C)  (ii)  and  (iv) only
