Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1).All windows are doors (A) โ conversion โ some doors are windows (I). Hence conclusion I follow. Some keys are locks (I) + No lock is a window (E) = I+E=O = some keys are not windows. Hence conclusion II follows.

2).All trains are trucks (A) + (some ships are trucks (I) โ conversion โ) some trucks are ships (I) = A+I = No conclusions. But the possibility in I exists. Hence conclusion I follow but conclusion II does not follow from the second statement.

3).All trains are trucks (A) โ conversion โ some trucks are trains (I). Hence conclusion I do not follow.
Again, some trucks are ships (I) + No ship is a car (E) = I+E = some trucks are not cars.
Hence conclusion II follows.

4).All pages are papers (A) + (some letters are papers (I) โ conversion โ) some papers are letters (I) = A+I = No conclusion. But the possibility in I exists. Hence conclusion I follow.
Again, No word is a word (E). Hence II follow.

5). From I.There is no mention of N. I is not sufficient to answer the question.
From II.Total no. of boys between Q and N = 50 โ (12+17)
=50 โ (12+17)
= 50 โ 29 = 21
Only II is sufficient to answer the question

6). From both I and II
3 \$ 5 6 โ flowers are so beautiful
6 \$ 3 # โ red flowers are beautiful
3\$ 6 โ flowers are beautiful
Thus, 5 โ so
# โ Red
