Option (D) is correct because;.

In 1st conclusion, Info about Green is not given so we assume Conclusion 1 is not correct.

In 2nd conclusion, correct info about Toxi is not given like Some or All so we assume Conclusion 2 is not correct.

Let's evaluate each conclusion:

Some mangoes are green.

This conclusion cannot be derived from the given statements. There is no direct information about the color of mangoes other than some of them being yellow.

So, we cannot conclude that some mangoes are green based on the given premises. (False)

Tixo is yellow.
This conclusion also cannot be derived from the given statements. While it is true that some Tixo is mangoes, we do not have any information about the colour of Tixo. So, we cannot determine whether Tixo is yellow or not based on the given premises. (False)

So, the correct option is:
d) Neither (1) nor (2) follows

Explanation:
Neither of the conclusions follows logically from the given statements. The information provided on the premises is not sufficient to draw conclusions about the colour of mangoes (green) or the colour of Tixo (yellow).

Therefore, both conclusions are not valid.

Conclusion is:- Tixo is yellow.
So what does it mean:- all Tixo are yellow?

OR
Some TIXO are yellow.
Since there is no word written before Tixo, So how it comes? Please tell me.

We can not go directly with the figure 2, Because in given problem there is nothing mention about the "some tixo is yellow" so we cannot go directly with figure 2.

It's Simple.

1) Some mangoes are green.
They have not mentioned about "Green" in Statements - So 1st conclusion is failed.

2) Tixo is Yellow.
We have to look on 1st and 2nd statement together but "Some + Some = No Conclusion". So 2nd conclusion also failed.

Hence, Neither 1 nor 2 follows.
