Logical Reasoning - Statement and Conclusion - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Statement and Conclusion - Section 1 (Q.No. 23)
Directions to Solve

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: Our securities investments carry market risk. Consult your investment advisor or agent before investing.


  1. One should not invest in securities.
  2. The investment advisor calculates the market risk with certainty.
Only conclusion I follows
Only conclusion II follows
Either I or II follows
Neither I nor II follows
Both I and II follow
Answer: Option
Investment in securities involves risk. This does not mean that one should not invest in securities. So, I does not follow. Since the statement advises one to consult investment advisor before investing, so II follows.

The word 'With certainty' does not seems to be logical. No one can predict with certainty.So neither follows.

I agree. The statement did not state that the advisor could calculate with certainty. Answer B would be and assumption and therefore could not be beyond reasonable doubt.

I agree. The statement "with certainty" makes II not follow.

No one can calculate market risk with certainty.

Nobody can predict with certainty. What happens in the market cannot be certified.

What happens in the market stays in the market.

Yeah, I agree, "with certainty". Not so much.

It has to be neither.
