Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1).Some letters are stories (I) โ conversion โSome stories are letters (I). Hence conclusion I does not follow. There is no negative statement. Thus the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows.

2).All helicopters are aeroplanes (A) + No aeroplanes is a fan (E)= A + E = E = No helicopter is a fan (E). Hence conclusion I follow.
Again, No aeroplane is a fan (E) โ conversion โ No fan is an aeroplane (E). Hence conclusion II follows.

3).All locks are computers (A) + (No TV is computer (E) โconversionร ) No computer is a TV (E) = A + E = E = No lock is a TV (E). Hence conclusion I follow.
Again, Some keys are locks (I) + All locks are computers (A) = I + A = I = Some keys are computers (I) + No computer is a TV (E) = I + E = O = Some keys are not TVs. Hence conclusion II follows.

4).All locks are computers (A) + No computer is a TV (E) = A + E = E = No lock is a TV โ conversion โ No TV is a lock โ implication โ Some TVs are not locks (O). Hence conclusion I follows.
Again, Some keys are locks (I) + All locks are computers (A) = I + A = I = Some keys are computers. Hence the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows.

5).No star is a planet (E) + (Some birds are planets (I) โ conversion โ) Some planets are birds (I) = E + I = O* = Some birds are not stars. Hence conclusion I does not follow. Again, No star is a planet โ conversion โ No planet is a star. Hence conclusion II follows.
