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.

C. Balaram is an ant eater.

D. Balaram likes ants.

E. Balaram may eat ants.
