All boats are rivers + All rivers are mangoes = A + A = All boats are mangoes, ie II does not follow.
All boats are mangoes + All mangoes are applies = A + A = A = All boats are apples. Hence IV follows but I
does not follow. All rivers are mangoes + All mangoes are apples = A + A = A = All rivers are apples.
Hence III follows.
12. (4);
Some cats are lions + All lions are hares = I + A = I = Some cats are hares Conversion some hares are
cats. Hence III and IV follow. Some cats are hares + All hares are horses I + A = I = Some cats are horses
Hence I follows.
All lions are hares + All hares are horses = A + A = A = All lions are horses. Its conversion Some horses
are lions. Hence II follows.
13. (3);
All forests are villages + All villages are trains = A + A = A = All forests are trains.
Hence III does not follow. All forests are trains + All trains are buses = A + A = A = All forests are buses.
Hence I follows Conversion Some buses are forests. Hence IV follows. All villages are trains + All
trains are buses = A + A = A = All villages are buses. Hence II follows.
14. (1);
All goats are lions + Some lions are horses = A + I = No Conclusion. Hence I does not follow. Some lions
are houses + All horses are camels = I + A = I = Some lions are camels. Hence II follow but III does not
follow. IV also does not follow.
15. (3);
All birds are fruits + Some fruits are towers = A + I = No conclusion. Hence I and IV do not follow. We
cannot find the conclusion between birds and towers, therefore cannot find conclusion between birds
and windows. Hence II does not follow.
Some fruits are towers + All towers are windows = I + A + I = Some fruits are windows, or some windows
are fruits. Hence III follows.
