Question 13

# In the following question, two statements are given each followed by two conclusions I and II. You have to consider the statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from commonly known facts. You have to decide which of the given conclusions, if any, follows from the given statements.Statements:(I) Some white is black.(II) No black is green.Conclusion:(I) Some white is green.(II) Some white is not green.

Solution

The basic diagram from the given statements is

(I) Some white is green

From the basic diagram, all green are not white. Hence Conclusion I do not follow.

(II) Some white is not green

All green are white in this possibility. Hence Conclusion II do not follow.

Both conclusions are false but when Conclusion I is false Conclusion II is true, when Conclusion I is true Conclusion II is false.

$$\therefore\$$Either Conclusion I or Conclusion II follows the given statements

Hence, the correct answer is Option C
