Directions(16-20):

16). No artist is a writer (E) + All writers are honest (A) = E + A = O* = Some honest are not artists. Hence, I does not follow. Again, All writers are honest (A) + No honest is an engineer (E) = A + E = E = No writer is an engineer +No artist is a writer (E) = E + E = No conclusion but the possibility in II exists. Hence II follows.
Answer: E)

17).Answer: D)

Some plants are trees (I) + All tress are woods (A) = I + A = I = Some plants are woods. Thus the possibility in I exists. Hence conclusion I follows. Again, All tress are woods (A) + All woods are shrubs (A) = A + A = A . All trees are shrubs  implication  Some trees are shrubs. Hence conclusion II follows

18).Answer: C)

Some honests are poor (I) + No poor is rich (E) = I + E = O = Some honests are not rich. Hence, conclusion I does not follow. Again, from statement first, second and third conclusion II may follow. Hence conclusion II does not follow.

19).Answer: D)

No window is a wall (E) + All walls are buildings (A) = E + A = O* = Some buildings are not windows. Hence the possibility in I exists. Hence, conclusion I follows. Again, some doors are windows (I) + No window is a wall (E) = I + E = O = Some doors are not walls. Hence, the possibility in II exists. Hence, conclusion II follows

20).Answer: E)
All laptops are computers (A) + Some computers are tablets (I) = A + I = No conclusion. Hence, conclusion I does not follow. Again, from statement first the possibility in II exists. Hence conclusion II follows.
