No, Option E is wrong, only 1 and 3 follows.

The 2nd figure clearly shows that the 2nd option can also be possible.

Then how it is option E? Please tell me.

Bhavya said:   6 years ago

Some books may or may not involve journals both are the possibilities that's why the correct answer is E.

Induja said:   6 years ago

Don't look at the diagram. Just think out yourself about the statement and conclusion you can get the E option.

Joshua said:   9 years ago
Use only the basic figure.

Muneesh Kumar Dogra said:   9 years ago
What does it mean that the conclusion needs to be true in every figure? Does it mean one option relates to one diagram or doesn't relate to other diagram at same time.

There can be other figures too which don't concludes the above options. We aim to conclude any option from all the figures, so option comes out to be E.
