In each of the following questions two statements are given and these statements are followed by two conclusions numbered (1) and (2). You have to take the given two statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from commonly known facts. Read the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the two given statements, disregarding commonly known facts.

Give answer:

  • (A) If only (1) conclusion follows
  • (B) If only (2) conclusion follows
  • (C) If either (1) or (2) follows
  • (D) If neither (1) nor (2) follows and
  • (E) If both (1) and (2) follow.

Some mangoes may be green.

What if this is written in conclusion. Please do me reply.

Sukanya said:   1 decade ago
I feel option b is the right answer.

Jubeca said:   1 decade ago
Tixo need not necessarily be yellow. As in t 2nd diagram only is it found to be intersecting with mangoes n yellow.

Also mangoes may be green. Tht ws my answer as well, but I guess we just have 2 relate our conclusion the question n not consider other facts.

Mangos are green but here not mention. So how is D option.

Sneha said:   1 decade ago
Here is ans for this question. Just a simple logic.

Always "SOME+SOME" gives answer as = "Neither (i) nor (ii)".

Pushpendu said:   1 decade ago
Some+some is not always neither (i) nor (ii). Ya but most cases.

By RAVAL'S notation Statements are M -Y and T - M and conclusions are M - G and T- Y. G is not present in the statement so M -G does not follow.We cannot link T - Y through common linking term M because we can deduce conclusion only when if common linking term multiplies i.e is in double letters,divides i.e become single letter from double letter or is in double letters in both statements

I had studied Raval's notation and now any syllogism problem is just as simple as ABC for me.
