What is tixo?

Vivek said:   7 years ago

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

Akash said:   7 years ago
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).

Ramya said:   8 years ago
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.

How it is D? Please explain!

Option B may be correct.

Lakshmi said:   8 years ago
Tixo means?

Ramesh said:   8 years ago
Some + Some = No conclusion. So neither 1 nor 2 follows.

Some mangoes are green i.e. all green are not mangoes but green is shaded with tixo and mangoes.

Here is only two picture but the same type of question on introduction page have 5 pictures.

Why is the difference?

Fire said:   8 years ago
What is tixo?

Najmul Haque said:   8 years ago
Some mangoes are green possible because all mangoes are not yellow.

It is not necessary all tixo is yellow (may be green) because some are yellow not all yellow.

So statement 1 is true.

So answer should be A.
