The given statement clearly implies that all irregular and some regular students fail in the examinations. This, in turn, means that all successful students are regular but not all regular students are successful.

Thus, neither I nor II follows.

=> Ans – (D)

The venn diagram for above statements is :

Conclusion: I: Some leaves are grapes = true

Conclusion II: All grapes are fruits = false

Thus, only conclusion I follows.

=> Ans – (A)

A is taller than B and C is taller than A, => C > A > B

D is taller than E but shorter than B, => B > D > E

Combining above statements, we get : C > A > B > D > E

Thus, C is the tallest.

=> Ans – (A)

Whether the administration of Orissa is sensitive or not, it does not determine the underdeveloped condition of Orissa. Similarly, the will statements do not conclude that it is the will of God.

Thus, neither I and II follows.

=> Ans – (D)

The statement clearly indicates that poverty is a symptom and consequence of social disorder, but it does not mean that poverty is a type of social order, thus first conclusion does not follow.

However, it does mean that poverty is related to social order.

Thus, only assumption II is correct

=> Ans – (B)

From the given statements, it is evident that all the states that have dams do not face any water problem, thus it is clear that dams solve water problems of a state, hence second conclusion follows. Also, one of the states does not have a dam, and it is possible that it may be facing water problem.

Thus, both conclusion I and conclusion II follow

=> Ans – (C)

The venn diagram for above statements is :

Conclusions:
I. All books are lions = true
II. All lions are books = false
III. All trees are books = false
IV. Some lions are books = true.

Thus, only conclusions I and IV follow

=> Ans – (B)

The venn diagram for above statements is :

Conclusion:

I. All tigers are goats = false

II. All lions are tigers = false

III. No goat is a lion = false

IV. No lion is a goat = false

Thus, none of the Conclusions follows

=> Ans – (C)

The venn diagram for above statements is :

Conclusion I : No night is day = true

Conclusion II : Some dawn is night = false

Thus, only conclusion I follows

=> Ans – (A)

When water is cooled, it turns into ice, this does not indicate that water is solid, and thus first conclusion does not follow.

When water is heated, it turns into steam, this does not indicate that water is gas, and thus second conclusion does not follow.

=> Ans – (D)

Expression : 9 ÷ 7 < 8 > (4>2) + 5

$\equiv9+7\times8\div(4\div2)-5$

= $9+\frac{56}{2}-5$

= $4+28=32$

=> Ans – (A)

P is shorter than Q but taller than R, => Q > P > R

Also, R is shorter than S, => S > R

Combining above statements, R is the shortest.

=> Ans – (C)

The statement indicates that if a person works hard, he will be successful. This does not mean that everyone works hard, thus conclusion I does not follow. But, it definitely states that hard work pays.

Thus, only II follows

=> Ans – (C)
