DIRECTIONS for questions: Each question consists of five statements followed by options consisting of three statements put together in a specific order. Choose the option which indicates a valid argument, that is, where the third statement is a conclusion drawn from the preceding two statements. Example:
A. All cigarettes are hazardous to health.
B. Brand X is a cigarette.
C. Brand X is hazardous to health.
ABC is a valid option, where statement C can be concluded from statements A and B.
A. Ant eaters like ants.
B. Boys are ant eaters.
C. Balaram is an ant eater.
D. Balaram likes ants.
E. Balaram may eat ants.
Option A: DCA
A cannot be inferred from D and C.
Option B: ADC
Ant eaters like ants and Balaram likes ants. From this, we cannot say that Balaram is an anteater.
But, from A and C, we can infer D.
Hence, ACD is the answer => Option D.
