Directions (Q. 16-20): In each question below are given statements followed by five conclusions numbered 1), 2), 3), 4) and 5). You have to assume everything in the statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance with commonly known facts and then find out which of the five given conclusions does not logically follow from the statements, disregarding commonly known facts.
16. Statements:
Some numbers are letters.
No letter is a vowel.
All vowels are words.

5) Some words are vowels.

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
Some numbers are letters (I) + No letter is a vowel = I + E = O = Some numbers are not vowels. Hence conclusion 1) follows -> No letter is a vowel (E) conversion No vowel is a letter (E). Hence conclusion 2) follows. No letter is a vowel (E) + All vowels are words (A) = E + A = O* = Some words are not letters. Hence 3) follows. Now, Some numbers are not vowels (O) + All vowels are words (A) = O + A = No conclusion. Hence conclusion 4) does not follow. All vowels are words (A) conversion Some words are vowels (I). Hence conclusion 5) follows.

17.Statements:
All papers are pages.
Some pages are books.
All books are copies.
Conclusions:

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
There is no negative statement. Thus the possibilities in 1) and 5) exist. Hence conclusion 1) and 5) both follow. All papers are pages (A) + Some pages are books (I) = A + I = No conclusion. Hence conclusion 2) does not follow. Some pages are books (I) + All books are copies (A) = I + A = I = Some pages are copies (I). Hence conclusion 3) follows. All papers are pages (A) conversion Some pages are papers (I). Hence conclusion 4) follows.

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
Some glasses are bottles + All bottles are caps = I + A = I = Some glasses are caps. Hence I follows. No cup is a glass (E) conversion No glass is a cup (E). Hence conclusion 5) follows. No cup is a glass (E) + Some glasses are bottles (I) = E + I = O* = Some bottles are not cups (O*). Hence conclusion 2) follows. Some bottles are not cups (O*) + All bottles are caps (A) = O* + A = No conclusion. Hence conclusion 3) does not follow. All bottles are caps (A) conversion Some caps are bottles (I). Hence conclusion 4) follows.

All kicks are sticks (A) + No stick is a brick (E) = A + E = E = No kick is a brick. Hence conclusion 1) follows. No stick is a brick (E) + Some bricks are stones (I) = E + I = O* = Some stones are not sticks. Hence conclusion 2) follows. Some bricks are stones (I) conversion Some stones are bricks (I). Hence conclusion 3) follows. 4) does not follow from conclusion 1). No stick is a brick (E) conversion No brick is a stick (E). Hence conclusion 5) follows.
