When a question uses assert statements and the question says: 'What is the result? what should we assume regarding the fact whether assertions are enabled or not?
My concern is that by default the assertions are not enabled so even if the code says 'assert false' nothing will happen. The correct answer depends on the underlying assumption so just want to clarify.
So you don't have to make any assumptions. If the command is not given, you might find something in the question which says -> "assertions are enabled at runtime, what will be the result". If none of the two is given, then you can assume that assertions are not enabled at runtime...
