The answer should be E as it completely goes with Venn Diagram.

Here both the statement are getting into one conclusion that some fools can be doctors and they can also be rich. The answer mentioned it is incorrect and it is not getting corrected after having a discussion in the forum.

As per the Venn diagram, option E should be the correct one.

According to me, Some doctors may be rich but all rich are not doctors. Therefore the conclusion is not definite.

Some doctor is fools and some fools are rich.

But it's not mentioned which part of fools are rich so it can be concluded that some doctors who are fools also can be part of fools that are rich.

So, I think the answer can be the option (A).
