You have to take the two given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from commonly known facts and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.

The syllogism canÂ  be better explained with the help of a Venn diagram.

Some sticks are bins. This conclusion is true
Some handles are flowers. This conclusion, apparent from Venn diagram, does not follow.
Some sticks are flowers. The sets of sticks and flowers are disjoint as apparent from Venn diagram. Hence, this conclusion does not follow.

The syllogism can be explained with following Venn Diagram.

Some towers are temples. This conclusion cannot be made.
Some houses are towers. This conclusion is true.
Some temples are windows. This conclusion again cannot be made with surety.

Only II follows.

The syllogisms can be intrepreted as:

Some chairs are doors. We cannot make this conclusion.
Some cots are walls. We also cannot makes this conclusion as both them are disjoint sets.
No chair is door. This conclusion is true and follows.

The given information can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

Here, if we assume – trees, gardens, stones and fences as sets then
Tree is subset of gardens. Gardens is subset of stones. Stones is subset of fences.
Therefore, all the conclusions are true.

The syllogism can be intrepreted in Venn Diagram form as:

Some jungles are books. This can’t be said with surety.
No book is box. This also cannot be concluded with any assurance.
Some leaves are boxes. The defibnite position of box set with respect to other sets is not known.
Hence, none of the conclusion follow.

ll rings are circles. Some circles are rings.
All square are are rings. Hence, some squares must be circles. Since no circle is an ellipse, no ring can be ellipse.
This can be seen from the following venn diagram.

Only statement II follows.

No house is an apartment.
Some bungalows are apartments. We cannot establish a relationship between bungalows.
Neither of I and II follow.

Therefore, option D is correct.

Some gases are liquids. All liquids might be gases.
All liquids are water. Hence, all liquids might be water.
Therefore, only statement I follows.

The venn diagram for above statements isÂ :

Conclusions :

I. No day is an hour = false
II. At least some hours are seconds = true

Thus, only conclusion II follows.

=> Ans – (B)

Some teachers are professors. All professors might be teachers.
Some lecturers are teachers. All teachers might be lecturers. Hence, all professors might beÂ  lecturers.
Therefore only statement I follows.
Option A is correct.

Some teachers are professors. All professors might be teachers.
Some lecturers are teachers. All teachers might be lecturers. All lecturers might professors.
Therefore only statement II follows.
Option A is correct.

The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

Conclusions: I. Atleast some bushes are trees. This is a true conclusion as apparent from Venn diagram.
II. Atleast some flowers are tress. This cannot be conluded with surety.
Only I follows.

The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

Conclusions: I. Atleast some brushes are colours.
II. No brush is a colour. This statement is true.
