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.

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.

I think the answer should be FALSE. It's very clearly mentioned "some" trees are dogwoods.

They did not mentioned that all trees in the park are dog wood trees.

What about those dogwoods that are in the park but are not trees so can't be flowering trees? Why are you ignoring them? Why do they get no love?
