The answer should be false.

For all trees in the park are flowering trees, and some are dogwood trees, then how come all trees in the park are flowering dogwood trees?

Yeah! The answer should be false as it is mentioned in the second statement that some trees in the park are dogwood.

And according to my knowledge, we are not supposed to apply our prior knowledge even if dogwood trees are flowering trees.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Here is written that all the trees in the plant contain flowers right?

Here it is written all so every plant contains a flower so the dogwood tree also contains flowers.

Correct me if I am wrong.

It should be uncertain because when we use a Venn diagram it shows that it's not compulsory for all dogwoods to be flowering trees.
