Direction (Q. 1 - 5): In each of the questions below are given four statements followed by three conclusions number I, II and III. 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 them decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.
Statements: All shirts are skirts.
All skirts are banks.
All banks are roads.
All roads are brushes.
Conclusions: I. All banks are skirts.
II. All roads are banks.
III. Some brushes are shirts.
All coins are glasses + Some glasses are cups = A + I = no conclusion. Hence I does not follow. Some cups are boxes + All boxes are pins = I + A = I = Some are pins. Hence III follows some glasses are cups + some cups are pins no conclusion. Hence II does not follow.
No tiger is + cat + Implication is some tigers are not cats. Hence I does not follow. No man is a tiger + No tiger is a cat = E + E = no conclusion. Hence II does not follow. Some lions are tigers + Conversion of No man is a tiger = I + E = O = Some lions are not men. Hence III does not follow.
Some plates are disks + All disks are mirrors = I + A = 1 = Some plates are mirrors - Conversion - Some mirrors are plates (I). Hence III follows. Some plates are mirrors + All mirrors are tyres = I + A = I = Some plates are tyres - Conversion - Some tyres are plates (I). Hence I follows.
Statements: All flowers are houses.
All houses are tigers.
All tigers are goats.
Some goats are bullocks.
Conclusions: I. Some goats are flowers.
II. Some tigers are flowers.
III. Some bullocks are tigers.
All flowers are houses + All houses are tigers = A + A = A = All flowers are tigers - Conversion - Some tigers are flowers (I). Hence II follows. III does not follow because A + I = No conclusion. All flowers are tigers + All tigers are goats = A + A = A = All flowers are goats - Conversion - Some goats are flowers (I). Hence I follows.
