Logical Reasoning - Statement and Conclusion - Discussion

In each question below is given a statement followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to assume everything in the statement to be true, then consider the two conclusions together and decide which of them logically follows beyond a reasonable doubt from the information given in the statement.

Give answer:

  • (A) If only conclusion I follows
  • (B) If only conclusion II follows
  • (C) If either I or II follows
  • (D) If neither I nor II follows and
  • (E) If both I and II follow.


Statements: A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.


  1. We should be content with what we have.
  2. We should not crave for what is not.

[A]. Only conclusion I follows
[B]. Only conclusion II follows
[C]. Either I or II follows
[D]. Neither I nor II follows
[E]. Both I and II follow

Answer: Option E


Both the given conclusions clearly bring out the central theme of the proverb given in the statement. So, both I and II follow.

Is proverb allowed in statement and conclusion based reasoning. The question seems most like statement and inference.
