Solutions 1 to 5 :

The conclusions talk about a relation between tables and bottles. Let’s bring a relation between these two using the given statements.
Some bottles are jugs and no jug is a plate => some bottles can be plates or no bottle is a plate
Some plates are tables => some bottles can be plates or no bottle is a plate. Â — (1)
All cups are bottles and some bottles are jugs => Nothing about cups and jugs can be derived from this. Since we cannot derive a conclusion between cups and jugs, it is not possible to derive a conclusion between cups and plates as well. Hence option E, which says that some bottles can be plates or no bottle is a plate is the answer.

The following are the two possibilities:

So, either I or III and II and IV follow.

Birds is a subset of Horses, which is a subset of Tigers. So, conclusions I and III follow. But, conclusions II and IV need not follow.

Based on the following Venn diagram, only conclusions 3 and 4 are implied.

Based on the Venn diagram, none of the conclusions are implied by the statements.

Solutions ( 6 to 10 ):

Some squares are circles and no circle is a triangle => Some squares are not triangles => Conclusion 1 followsÂ No line is a square => No relation can be brought between line and circle => Conclusion 2 does not follow.

Some squares are circles and no circle is a triangle => Some squares are not triangles => Some squares being triangles is a possibility => Conclusion 1 does not follow No line is a square and some square are circle => Some lines being circles is a possibility => Conclusion 2 does not follow

All songs are poems and all poems are rhymes => All songs are rhymes
No rhyme is a paragraph => No song is a paragraph => Conclusion 1 follows
