Question 146

Statements :
In order to be selected for the local cricket team, a person should be either a good batsman or bowler.
Shyam is selected for the team.
Conclusions:
I. Shyam is a good batsman.
II. Shyam is not a good bowler.

Solution

Shyam got selected in the team means that:
1. He is a good batsman
OR 2. He is a good bowler
OR 3. He is both a good bowler and a good batsman

Any of these 3 situations is possible. If Shyam is a good batsman doesn't mean that he is a bad bowler. We only know that he is a good batsman and thus, got selected to the team. Same logic applies if Shyam is a good bowler. 
Hence, neither I or II follows with certainty.
