The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram from as:

Some towns are rural. We cannot say this with surety and this conclusion can be contradicted.
All rural are towns.This definitely cannot be concluded from Venn diagram.
Hence, both conclusion I and II do not follow.

The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

Some colleges are strong.We cannot draw this conclusion with assurance.

At least some strong are concrete. This conclusion can be drawn with surety as apparent from Venn diagram.

Only II follows. Option B is correct.

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.

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.

The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

Conclusions: I. Atleast some rocks are gems.This is true conclusion.
II. All gems are rocks. This is also a true comclusion as apparent from Venn diagram.
Both conclusion I and II follow.

The Venn diagram for the Syllogism is as follows:

Based on the diagram, some rings being ellipses is not a possibility. But atleast some circles are squares. Hence (B) is the answer

The Venn diagram for the syllogism is as shown below:

Based on the diagram, at least some tigers are horses and atleast some tigers are birds.

The other 2 conclusions are not implied from the diagram. Hence, the correct answer is (a)

The data can be intrepreted in Venn Diagram form as:

I.Some stones are shells. This cannot be said with surety. As Stones and Shells may intersect or not.
II. No pearl is container.
III.No shell is container. The container set may or may not intersect with Shell set. No conclusion can be made.
IV.Some pearls are containers. Together II and IV form a universal set and either of them has to be true.

Only option C is correct.

The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

Conclusions
I.No highway is a road. This is a correct conclusion.
II.All streets are road. This is a wrong conclusion.
Therefore, only conclusion I follows.

The data can be intrepreted in Venn diagram form as:

I.Some roads are boards. This is correct conclusion.
II.Some lanes are clips. This is a wrong conclusion as apparent from the Venn diagram.
III.Some boards are papers. This is also a wrong conclusion.
IV.Some roads are clips. This is incorrect conclusion as apparent from Venn diagram.
Only I follows.

We use elimination in this syllogism. ie we draw an exception to contradict the conclusions. This diagram below contradicts I, II and IV. Conclusion II holds in various diagrams and can’t be contradicted. So, only conclusion II is implied. Since none of the options shows that, we choose (e) None of these.

The venn diagram for above statements isÂ :

Conclusions:

I. Some buses are definitely not trucks = true
II. At least some trucks are cars = true

Thus,Â both conclusion I and II follow.

=> Ans – (D)

from the above statements we can draw the following venn

and hence we can say that either of the statements will be true
