  • what is explicitly stated, claimed or concluded
  • what is assumed or supposed, perhaps without justification or proof
  • what is not stated, but necessarily follows from what is stated

The following announcement appeared in an East-West Bus Line company memorandum:
“Beginning on June 1, the East-West Bus Company will no longer run buses on any of its interstate routes on Saturdays and Sundays. A survey of the riders on the Boston-New York route taken over a ten-day period in November showed that more than 95% of the passengers do not use the buses on weekends. This reduction in the schedule will allow the company to continue to increase its return to stockholders with a minimum of inconvenience to the bus-riding public.”

You may wish to discuss any doubtful assumptions and how other possible explanations could affect its conclusions. Your essay may also consider how the argument could be made more persuasive and its conclusion more convincing.
