Some mangoes may be green.

I feel option b is the right answer.

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.

Here is ans for this question. Just a simple logic.

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