Question 5

Statements:
Teachers should have empathy.
Students need empathetic approach from their teachers.

Conclusions:
I: Persons without empathy cannot become good teachers.
II: Good teachers understand the problems of their students.

Solution

While it is given that empathy is a desirable quality in teachers, we do not have a clear idea as to what makes a good teacher. 
A teacher might be good even if they do not have empathy. 
Also, we do not know whether good teachers really understand the problems of the students. No sufficient info is available to make these inferences. 
Hence, meither 1 nor 2 follow.
