Questions (01-06):

 Person State Dish A Uttarakhand/ Kerala Rajma B Punjab Sandwich C Bihar Pizza D Jharkhand Samosa E Uttarakhand/Kerala Dosa F Gujarat Dhokla G Rajasthan Burger

7). No lock is a door (E) +(All keys are doorsàconversionà) Some doors are keys (I) =E+I = 0*= some keys are not locks.
Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, Some doors are keys (I)+ Some keys are rooms (I) = I+I = No conclusion. Hence conclusion II does not follow.
Some keys are rooms (I)àconversionà Some rooms are keys (I). Hence conclusion III follows.

8). All keys are doors(A)à conversionà Some doors are keys (I). Hence conclusion I follows.
Some doors are keys + Some keys are rooms = I+I = No conclusion. But the possibility exists. Hence conclusion II follows.
No lock is a door (E)à conversionà No door is a lock (E). Thus, All doors are definitely not locks. Hence conclusion II follows.

9). No laptop is a mouse (E) + (some keyboards are mouses (I)àconversionà) Some mouses are keyboards (I)= E+I =0* = Some mouses are laptops. Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, Some computers are laptops (I) + No laptop is a mouse (E) =I + E =0 = Some computer are not mouses. Hence conclusion II follows.
No laptop is a mouse (E)à conversionà No mouse is a laptop (E). Thus, All mouses are not laptops. Hence conclusion III follows.
