Directions (Q. 6-10):In each question below are given two/three statements followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance with commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.
a)  If only conclusion I follows.
b)  If only conclusion II follows.
c)  If either conclusion I or II follows.
d)  If neither conclusion I nor II follows.
e)  If both conclusion I and II follow.

6). Statements:   All crafts are projects.
Some projects are missions.
No mission is a guide.
Conclusions:
I.Some projects are guides.
II.No project is a guide.

7). Statements:   Some outputs are results.
All outputs are products.
Conclusions:
I.No product is a result.
II.All yields are products.

8). Statements:   Some outputs are results.
All outputs are products.
Conclusions:
I. All outputs are yields.
II. All results being yields is a possibility.

9). Statements:   No price is a rate.
All rates are expenses.
Conclusions:
I.No expense is a price.
II.All prices being expenses is a possibility.

10). Statements: All crafts are projects.

No mission is a guide.
Conclusions:
I. No guide is a craft.
II. At least some missions are crafts.

Directions (Q. 1-5):

Some projects are missions (I) + No mission is a guide (E) = I + E = O = Some projects are not guides.
But conclusion I and II make a complementary pair (I-E). hence either onclusion I or II follows.

Some outputs are results (I)ร conversionร Some results are outputs (I) + All outputs are products (A) = I + A = I = Some results are products (I)ร conversionร Some products are results (I). Hence conclusion I does not follow. Again, All
products are yields (A)ร conversionร Some yields are products (I). Hence conclusion II does not follow.

All outputs are products (A) + All products are yields (A) = A + A = A = All outputs are yields (A). Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, Some outputs are results (I)ร conversionร Some results are outputs (I) + All outputs are yields (A) = I + A = I = Some results are yields. Thus, the possibility between result and yields in conclusion I exists. Hence conclusion II follows.
