Premise : When Joe goes to see his favorite football team play, he sometimes sits without a shirt and paints his body with the team colors, and his team wins.

Conclusion : Clearly Joe's actions lead to his team's success.

Ques : The above conclusion is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed?

Pre-thinking : We need to relate that only when Joe sits without his shirt and with the team colours on his body, then only the team wins. In other words, the winning of the team is decided by whether Joe paints his body with team colors.

Lets analyse our options now :
(A) Shirts are not required at football games. - Incorrect as it is mentioned in the argument above that "sometimes" Joe sits without shirt and not always.

(B) The fate of a football team relies on fans explicitly showing their loyalty when attending their games. - Correct as this links the Joe's (fan of the team) actions with the winning of the team.

(C) Joe is a huge fan of football. - Incorrect as this is new information and does not link the premise to conclusion.

(D) Joe's team has a winning record. - Incorrect as this is also new information and does not link the premise to conclusion.

(E) Joe should always sit with his shirt off and paint his body for his team to win. - Incorrect - this does link the act of Joe with the winning of team but this option says what Joe should do for his team to win next, it does not tell why Joe's act is making the team win.

The above conclusion is properly drawn if which of the following is assumed?

Clearly this is an Assumption question.
Premise 1->When Joe goes to see his favorite football team play
Premise 2-> he sometimes sits without a shirt and paints his body with the team colors
Conclusion -> His Team wins

Now it is important to note that the both premises are required to get to the conclusion. Even if one is not factored in the options, that option will be discarded.


(A) Shirts are not required at football games.
Not linked to any premise or conclusion

(B) The fate of a football team relies on fans explicitly showing their loyalty when attending their games.
It seems like a contender. Fans go to stadiums and show their support in their own methods and sometimes team wins. Go to Premise 2 for the bold portion. Marking it for now.

(C) Joe is a huge fan of football.
So what, many are die-hard fans of football.

(D) Joe's team has a winning record.
Then there is no assumption. The conclusion fails. If team has record of winning then there is no role of Joe.

(E) Joe should always sit with his shirt off and paint his body for his team to win.

Okay, this was a contender but lost the race as in premise 1 it was mentioned that Joe went to watch the game. He could easily paint his body and sit at his home. Hence Incorrect
