Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1.) There is no negative statement. Thus, the possibility in I exists. Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, All locks are doors (A) + Some doors are keys (I) = A + I= No conclusion. Hence conclusion II does not follow.

2.) Some handles are locks (I)ร conversionร Some locks are handles (I). Hence conclusion I does not  follow. There is no negative statement. Thus, the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows.

3.) No butter is milk (E) + Some milk is curd (I)= E +I = O* = some curds are not butter. Hence conclusion I follows. Some milk is curds (I) + No curd is water (E) = I + E = O = Some milk is not water. Hence conclusion II follows.

4.) Some milk is curd (I) + No curd is water (E) = I + E =O = Some milk is not water. Hence conclusion I does not follow. Again, some milk is curd (I)ร conversionร Some curd is milk. But some curd being not milk is a possibility that exists. Hence conclusion II follows.
