Logical Reasoning - Logical Problems - Discussion

Each problem consists of three statements. Based on the first two statements, the third statement may be true, false, or uncertain.


Tom puts on his socks before he puts on his shoes.
He puts on his shirt before he puts on his jacket.
Tom puts on his shoes before he puts on his shirt.
If the first two statements are true, the third statement is

[A]. true
[B]. false
[C]. uncertain

Answer: Option C


There is not enough information to verify the third statement.

Here first they say about shoe and shocks then shirt and jacket but they does not relate both these so we can't say correctly so it is uncertain.

But if we use our logic, obviously tom will first put on his shirt and then shoes.

But based on the first premise and second premise, the 1st mentioned about wearing of shoes and 2nd is wearing of shirt. It follows that the 3rd premise is true.

He has all the chances to do that. So I don't think its uncertain.

I also thought it is true.

But statement I and II have no evidence that can prove statement III.

There is no need for III to be true if I and II are true.
