Read the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the two given statements, disregarding commonly known facts.

• (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.

Hello please we Need some fast sloving method needed. Who's know Tell me Here Friends.

Here it is given that some actors are singers and every singer is a dancer so actors are all dancers.

Its just like a=b,b=c then a=c.

Tell me the solving of syllogism problems in another way,rather than Venn diagram approach.

I would like to say that , if a=b, b=c, then a=c , but is it true for c=a .

Why all the actors are concluded as dancers? in one of venn diagram.

@Rashmi

All actors are not concluded in any diagram, it shows some actors are dancers.

Does the logical deduction step of conversion and implification is also applied here along with the venn diagram to get the conclusion?

Hello friends I have a short technique,

In here no need to draw diagram. If two statement is given then 1st look the mediator if it contain ALL, NO then close ur eyes and sure that it is distributiv if the mediator have no ALL, No then the conclusion has a -ve term.

Let eg
some actor are dancer
all dancer are singer
ANS; some actor are singer/some singer are actor
some actor are dancer
some dancer are singer
ANS; some singer are not dancer
