"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
- Albert Einstein

In each question below is given a statement followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true, then consider the two conclusions together and decide which of them logically follows beyond a reasonable doubt from the information given in the statement.

• (A) If only conclusion I follows
• (B) If only conclusion II follows
• (C) If either I or II follows
• (D) If neither I nor II follows and
• (E) If both I and II follow.

2.

Statements: The old order changed yielding place to new.

Conclusions:

1. Change is the law of nature.
2. Discard old ideas because they are old.

 [A]. Only conclusion I follows [B]. Only conclusion II follows [C]. Either I or II follows [D]. Neither I nor II follows [E]. Both I and II follow

Explanation:

Clearly, I directly follows from the given statement. Also, it is mentioned that old ideas are replaced by new ones, as thinking changes with the progressing time. So, II does not follow.

 Nizamuddin said: (Sat, Jul 30, 2011 08:27:42 AM) According to the given statements, the two conclutions are actually true, but answer I did not got.

 Shaher said: (Fri, Aug 12, 2011 11:35:09 PM) The statement clearly tells that older is changed in order to give place to new. Then how can the answer b change is the law of nature. Didn't get it clearly. Do explain in detail.

 Minukavya said: (Sat, Oct 1, 2011 09:55:59 PM) I do agree with Poonam and Shaher We need explanation.

 Rameshwar said: (Wed, Feb 15, 2012 10:44:33 PM) The (I) conclusion that is drawn from the given statement can not be challenged. The 2nd conclusion can be easily challenged so only I follows.
