2 doesn't follow because time is not related to the calendar, but whereas [man should die one day] where the day is relevant to the word calendar, so 1 is follows I guess.

Correct me, If I am wrong.

I is individually correct but never in the context of the given statement whereas II is consistent. I is no way related. Only II follows.

I think "must" is incorrect. It should be "will" or "shall". It is not compulsory to die. Thus making 1 irrelevant. And Only 2 follows.

I conclusion is, no doubt, a fact but in no way mentioned in the statement. Only II follows.

Death is inevitable. Even if the day is uncertain yet, it is certain that death will come.

"Death keeps no calender" means death can come at any time, but need not be compulsory.
