Â
Directions (Q. 6-10):
6). E)
Some posters are pictures (I) + No picture is an image (E) = I + E = O = Some posters are not images. O-type conclusion canâ€™t be converted. Hence conclusion I does not follow.
Again, No picture is an image (E)Ã conversionÃ No image is a picture (E). Hence conclusion II follows.
Now, All picks are images (A). Hence, conclusion III does not follow.
Â
7). C)
Â All bottle are caps (A) + Some caps are covers (I) = A + I = No conclusions. Hence conclusion I does not follow.
Again, Some caps are covers (I) + (No bowl is a cover (E)Ã  conversionÃ ) No cover is a bowl (E) = I + E = O = Some caps are not bowls. Hence conclusion II does not follow. But conclusion III follows.
Â
8). C)
Some cables are wires (I)Ã conversionÃ Some wires are cables (I). Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, Some bulbs are poles (I) + No pole is a wire (E) = I + E = O = Some bulbs are not wires (O) + (Some cables are wires (I)Ã conversionÃ ) Some Wires are cables = O + I = No conclusion. But the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows and also conclusion III follows.
Â
9). A)
All dogs are toys (A)Ã conversionÃ Some toys are dogs. Hence, conclusion I follows.
No card is a teddy (E) + No teddy is a dog (E) = E + E = No conclusion. Hence conclusion II does not follow.
Again, No card is a teddy (E)Ã conversionÃ No teddy is a card (E). Hence conclusion III follows.
Â
10). E)
Some books are caps (I) + No cap is a cover (E) = I + E = O = Some books are not covers (O). Hence conclusion I follows.
No book is a copyÃ conversionÃ No copy is a book. Thus, All copies are not books. Hence conclusion II follows.
Again, No copy is a book (E) + Some books are caps (I) = E + I = O* = Some caps are not copies. Hence conclusion III follows.
