      III. No badminton is rubber.

      A None follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      B Only II follow Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      C Only I and II follow Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      D Only II and III follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
      E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

      Solution

      Some rackets are rubbers(I) + No rubber is a string(E) → Some rackets are not strings(O). Hence, conclusion I will not follow. Some rackets are rubbers(I) → conversion → Some rubbers are rackets(I) → Probable conclusion → Some rubbers may not be rackets(O). Hence, conclusion II will follow. A + I = no conclusion. Hence, conclusion III will not follow.
