Directions (Q.1-5): In each question below are given two or more 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 statements disregarding commonly known facts.

1.   If only conclusion I follows
2.   If only conclusion II follows
3.   If either conclusion I or II follows
4.   If neither conclusion I nor II follows
5.   If both conclusions I and II follow

1). e)   2). a)   3). e)   4). b)   5). b)   6). b)   7). a)   8). e)   9). e)   10). a) 11). e)
Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1). No square is a rectangle (E) โ conversion โ No rectangle is a square (E). Now, some circles are rectangles (I) + No rectangle is a square (E) = I + E = O = some circles are not square. Hence both conclusion I and II follow.

2). All triangles are square (A) + No square is a rectangle (E) = A + E = E = No triangle is a rectangle. Hence conclusion I follow.
Again, some circle is rectangles (I) โ conversion โ some rectangles are circles. Hence conclusion II does not follow.

3). No plate is a spoon (E) โ conversion โ No spoon is a plate (E). Thus, all spoons are not plates. Hence conclusion I follows. There is no negative statement between bottle and plate. Thus, the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows.

4). Some plates are cups (I) โ conversion โ some cups are plates (I) + No plate is spoon (E) = I + E= O = some cups are not spoons. Hence conclusion I do not follow.
Some plates are cups (I) โ conversion โ some cups are plates (I). Thus, the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows

5). No cover is a net (E) + No net is a jar (E) = E + E = No conclusion. Hence conclusion I do not follow.
No net is a jar (E) + (some taps are jars (I) โ conversion โ) some jars are taps (I) = E+I = O* = some taps are not nets. Hence conclusion II follows.

6).

8). Given statements:
DโฅR>Z โฆโฆ (i)
Q>NโฅE = D โฆโฆ (ii)
Combining both statements, we get
Q>NโฅE = DโฅR>Z
Thus, NโฅD is true
Again, Q>Z is true
Hence both conclusions I and II are true

10). Given statements:
Thus, TโคF is true.
But, we canโt compare U and D. Hence conclusion II (D>U) is not true.
Hence only conclusion I is true.
