Question

In each question below are given three statements followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to take the two given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance with commonly known facts and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the two given statements, disregarding commonly known facts. Give Answer:

Statements: Some officers are clerks.

No clerk is a peon.

All peons are guards.

Conclusions: I. No guard is a clerk.

II. Some officers are not guards.

A If only conclusion I follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
B If only conclusion II follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
C If both conclusions I and II follow Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
D If either conclusions I or II follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
E If neither conclusion I nor II follows Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

Solution

No clerk is peon (E) + All peons are guards (A) = Some guards are not clerks (O*). Hence, conclusion I will not follow. I + E = O and O + A = No conclusion. Hence, conclusion II will also not follow.
