Some mangoes are said yellow OK but not said all and in (1) some mangoes can be green also then why should not following (1).

@All,

You guys are missing the point, a third diagram is possibly right, where tixo covers all of yellow and a part of mangoes.

Sumit said:   7 years ago
What is tixo?

Ranjan Kr Singh said:   7 years ago
In my point of view, option 2 is right.

Kushal Pakhale said:   7 years ago
I think tixo means Green mango.

Tixo is a mango which is green in color not yellow or pink.

R Kumar said:   7 years ago
Tixo is a mango whose colour is not known because Some + Some give no conclusion.

When deals with venn diagrams it is better to follow minimum overlap rule, ie, in this case, first diagram will do and no common facts logic to be applied, like, tixo means green mango etc.

Some mangoes are green is not true because it is not mentioned anywhere in statement. Tixo is a yellow is also not true because you cannot say for certain that it is yellow. It may or may not be yellow. Thats neither.
