B If only conclusion II follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
C If either conclusion I or II follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
D If neither conclusion I nor II follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

Both the statements are positive statements and we know that no definite conclusion can be drawn from the negative statements. Hence, neither conclusion I nor conclusion II will follow.
