30.

Statements: The eligibility for admission to the course is minimum second class Master's degree. However, the candidates who have appeared for the final year examination of Master's degree can also apply.

Conclusions:

  1. All candidates who have yet to get their Master's degree will be there in the list of selected candidates.
  2. All candidates having obtained second class Master's degree will be there in the list of selected candidates.
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
Explanation:
The statement mentions that the candidates who have obtained second class Master's degree or have appeared for the final year examination of Master's degree, can apply for admission. This implies that both types of candidates may be selected on certain grounds. Thus, some candidates of each type and not all candidates of any one type, may be selected. So, neither I nor II follows.

I think answer should be E because all those candidates which either have decond class masters degree or appeared for the final year of examination of masters degree are eligible.

Just because of use of word "All" in statement II the ans becomes option D. Since the selected students will be from second class or higher class. Means some of the selected students will be from second class. not because of eligibility they all get selected right?

To Rehana and Pravin

answer is neither I nor II follows

because it uses word ALL in the conclusion

All people can apply for course those who fulfills eligibility but

only SOME will be selected not ALL

There are some other ways to negate this.............

As the explanation mentions about both types of candidates may be selected on certain grounds. and it is also mentioned that some candidates of each type and not all candidates of any one type, may be selected..this implies that either from I and II some candidates may be selected, so the answer should be (C).

But all the candidates with minimum 2nd class will be selected since its the eligibility criteria, . So I think it must be II.
