Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1).

Hence E is mother of J.

2).

Hence M is husband of S.

3).

Hence V is mother-in-law of W.

4). Total number of students in the row= (18+ 15-4)= 29 students

5).

6). No pen is a pencil (E) + All pencils are papers (A)=E=A=O*=Some papers are not pens (O*).
Now, Some papers are caps (I)ร conversionร Some caps are papers (I) + Some papers are not pens (O) = I+O= No conclusion. But the possibility in I exists. Hence I follows. Again, All pencils are papers (A) + Some papers are caps (I)= A+I= No conclusion. But the possibility in II also exists. Hence conclusion II follows.

7). No pen is a pencil (E) + All pencils are papers (I) = E+ A= O* = Some papers are not pens. Hence conclusion II follows. Again, the possibility in I exists. Hence I follows.

8). No page is a novel (E)ร  conversionร  No novel is a page (E). Hence II follows. Again, All books are novels (A) + No novel is a page (E)= A+E=E=No book is page. Hence conclusion I follows.

9). No novel is a page (E) + Some pages are covers (I)= E+I = O* = some covers are not novels. Hence conclusion I follows. Again, All books are novels (A) + (No page is novelร  conversionร ) No novel is a page (E)= A+E= E= No book is a page. Hence conclusion II follows.
