Directions (Q. 6-10):

1. Answer: c; All stones are poles + All poles are desks = A + A = A = All stones are desks โ conversion โ Some desks are stones (I). Hence II follows. All stones are desks + Some desks are nets = A + I = No conclusion. Hence I does not follow. Some desks are nets + All nets are days = I + A = I = Some desks are days โ conversion โ Some days are desks (I). Hence III follows.
1. Answer: a; Some weeks are years + All years are buses = I + A = I = Some weeks are buses โ conversion โ Some buses are weeks (I). Hence II follows. Some weeks are buses + All buses are trains = I + A = I = Some weeks are trains โ conversion โ Some trains are weeks (I). Hence I follows. Some months are weeks + Some weeks are trains = I + I = No conclusion. Hence III does not follow.
1. Answer: c; Some stations are rails + All rails are rivers = I + A = I = Some stations are rivers โ conversion โ Some rivers are stations (I). Hence II follows. All rivers are papers + Some papers are cards = A + I = No conclusion. Hence III does not follow. Neither does I.
1. Answer: c; All windows are roofs + All roofs are glasses = A + A = A = All windows are glasses โ conversion โ Some glasses are windows (I). Hence II follows.
