Answer: Option C


Football, Players and Field all are different.

Vidya said: (Jul 19, 2010)  
How they all are different? They are related to each other.

Toto_Chang said: (May 14, 2011)  
I agree with Vidya they are all related to each other.

The ans should be "D".

Sundar said: (May 14, 2011)  
To: Vidya, Toto_Chang

You are all wrong.

A Football cannot be a Player or Field.
A Player cannot be a Field or Football.
A Field cannot be a Player or Football.

All are different. So the given answer is correct.

Note: The relation should be like the given below.

A man can be a player.
A human can be male.
Apple is a Fruit
A fruit can be an apple
... etc.

Hope this help you. Have a nice day!

Anu said: (Jul 6, 2011)  
Yes Sundar said correct.

Lipika said: (Sep 20, 2011)  
But then again in the previous question about lamp, wick and oil.

If we had framed it like a lamp can't be oil and oil can't be wick, that wouldn't make much sense. So I guess the correct option is B. Football has player and field but field and player are 2 different things.

Nishant said: (Jun 26, 2012)  
Agree with Lipika.

Because what Sundar said was correct in his own perception.
There are ways to think like.

1. In football, there are players.
2. Football is not a player.

These are 2 different perceptions.
Kindly anyone guide that which perception to follow.


Jagdish Chandra said: (Sep 14, 2012)  
Vidya, Sundar & Lipika all are correct in their ways.But still no right perception is there. One thing is clear that option 'A' & 'D' both are incorrect Ans. But my heart saying option 'B' is better correct than the option 'C'.

Sneha Nayakam said: (Oct 20, 2012)  
This is maths, so yes, there is one correct answer, that's the special thing about maths. The previous question throw you off, as they say its related because both things are used for an oil lamp, so one would automatically acknowledge how there are players in football,and football is played in a field.

So Ans D) is a possibly, but if you think about doesn't Ans A) seem more suited as not all players play on the field or play football, but football and field are linked, but this does not mean that football is the only field sport (rugby, soccer,field hockey,etc).

So this is the final analysis, Football is the inner circle, Field is the outer circle that surrounds the inner circle, and the players are the multiple intersection circle.

Praveen (Abhi) said: (Apr 14, 2013)  
Great analysis @Sneha Nayakam, If you didn't gave your explanation, I may not agree with you.

Mehraj said: (Nov 1, 2013)  
I think 'B' is the correct answer because football and players both are the part of same field.

Hoshyar Singh Bhatti said: (Apr 22, 2014)  
Great sneha nayakam I like your thinking power, but I think a large circle is field and a player and a football (not game think about only ball which is used to play football) are the two small circles inside the big one. Imagine a player is standing in the field and football is kept near his leg. So according to my perception correct option is "B".

Mansi said: (Aug 3, 2014)  
Here field is related to the players and players is related to the football so the should be D.

Sahin said: (Apr 19, 2016)  
Yes, I think option B is correct. The 2 smaller circles can represent football and players respectively. And the larger field because football and players require a field.

Sahin said: (Apr 19, 2016)  
What @Lipika said? I am not understanding.

Rohit said: (Apr 29, 2016)  
Option B is correct.

Here football does not represent the game. It is representing football a ball only. So in the field both football and players are present.

Najmul Haque said: (May 21, 2016)  
As per my opinion Ans B is correct, and I agree @Rohit.

Field represent both player and Football.

Player cannot play without Field of Football.

Tej11 said: (Jun 25, 2016)  
No constraints mentioned, so, the answer is Option C.

A field can be agrarian, sports, subject etc.

Jayesh said: (Oct 9, 2016)  

You forgot this example: sea, sailor, ship.

At that time all are related with each other.

So why in this example logic is different?

Jayesh said: (Oct 9, 2016)  
@Sneha Nayakam.


Monisha Stanley said: (Oct 28, 2016)  
Option C is right.

These are logical reasoning question. Think out of the box too.

Football-->game or object (non living thing) ,

Player--->person (living thing).

Field-->Area (place).

So all three are different according to the question, the relation between them and mainly it suits with given option C. If option C is not given we can move for other options for relating this question in Venn diagram.

Monisha Stanley said: (Oct 28, 2016)  

Order of the question is important in relation it is sailor, ship, ocean not as Sea, sailor, ship.

It's simple: sailor travels in the ship, ship travels in the ocean. But we can't compare that logic with this question. Here the relation they have given is things, person, a place so it matches logically with option C.

Monisha Stanley said: (Oct 28, 2016)  
I do agree at @Tej 11.

Ranjan said: (Nov 27, 2016)  
"B" can be the answer also as both player and football will be in the field.

Meghana said: (Dec 3, 2016)  
Yes, I too feel "B" can be the answer.

Nilesh said: (Jan 13, 2017)  
No, since player and football will be in the field but are diff from each other.

Ishant said: (Feb 13, 2017)  

B is correct and in other's perception C may be correct but not A and D.

Sujit Kumar said: (Feb 26, 2017)  
Only option C is correct. The reason is football field player are different. All players doesnt play football and not even in field. All fields are not meant for players and football. If there would be 3 intersecting circles with common region that would have been the answer. But among the present option C is suits best.

Anu said: (May 14, 2017)  
Players plays football.

Football plays in the field.

So, the answer is B.

Neeraj said: (Aug 22, 2017)  

Players are not related to only football.

They may be from cricket, badminton, volleyball etc.

And field is not related to only football. It may a cricket ground also.

So, by these conclusion options A, B & D eliminated.

Right answer is C.

Snigdha said: (Jan 16, 2018)  
I agree with you @LIPIKA. The Correct answer should be option B.

Vimal said: (Jul 11, 2018)  
Football and player, both are related to the field but football and player are the different things. So according to me "B" will be the right answer.

Rock said: (Aug 4, 2018)  
A is the correct answer. As field and football are correlated and a player can play football on field.

Suman said: (Sep 6, 2018)  
B is the correct option.

Mukesh said: (Sep 15, 2018)  
I think the answer is B.

Raju said: (Sep 17, 2018)  
They are related to each other so, the answer is D.

Gowtham said: (Aug 16, 2019)  
They are related to each other so, the answer is D.

Ravi Ds said: (Aug 22, 2019)  
A is the correct answer. The field is not for only football and a player can play football.

Nisha Yadav said: (Jul 4, 2020)  
The correct answer should be B.

Rajeev said: (Aug 11, 2020)  
Why not option B? Please explain me.

Vikash said: (Sep 13, 2020)  
A is the correct answer as there is a relation between football and player & football and field so A can be the correct answer.
