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: People who speak too much against dowry are those who had taken it themselves.


  1. It is easier said than done.
  2. People have double standards.

[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


The statement clearly implies that it is easier to say than to do something and what people say is different from what they do. So, both I and II follow.

Conclusion II states the people which generalizes everybody. But in the statement discussion is only about people who speak too much against dowry.

II will be answer because they mention ''too much'' means expressing that they are completely against it but they are not.

Its clearly stated that they have taken dowry, why would it be difficult to do for them?

Isn't the statement 1 too general?

How is statement one implicit in the context of the question? it is too general.
