Statements: Jade plant has thick leaves and it requires little water.

Conclusions:

1. All plants with thick leaves require little water.
2. Jade plants may be grown in places where water is not in abundance.
Only conclusion I follows
Only conclusion II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Explanation:
The statement talks of jade plants only and not 'all plants with thick leaves'. So, I does not follow. Also, since jade plants require little water, so they can be grown in places where water is not in abundance. So, II follows.

I agree with B answer because they say that they require less water, so, it means that they grow in a deserted area like cactus in deserts.

Agree, B is the correct answer.

How can the 2nd conclusion is correct? Because it is purely an assumption. So, neither one nor two.

The two conclusions are not correct to the statement. So option D is the right answer.

I think D is correct because they need little water that means water should available nearby.

Option A is also correct because it follows simple inductive reasoning i.e. specific to general. As jade plant require less water because of their thick leaves; thus, every plant with thick leaves requires less water.
