All banker are adda.
All banker are 247.
Some CP are adda.
I. All 247 can never be CP.
Some adda are not banker.
There is no direct relation in between 247 and cp so we cannot say that all 247 can never be a part of cp.
There is a relation that some adda are also a part of banker but we cannot conclude that some adda are not a part of banker.
Some ssc are ctet.
All Ctet are jbt.
No ssc is a bjt.
I. All ctet can be ssc.
II. No ssc is a jbt.
For I- There is direct relation of some in between ctet and ssc but we cannot conclude that all ctet are ssc while in a case of possibility it is true that all ctet are ssc.
For II- From the venn diagram, it is clear that, there is a relation of some in between ssc and jbt, but we cannot conclude that no ssc is jbt so it is a false conclusion.
Some files are boxes.
Some plastics are not cartoons.
Some cartoon are files.
I. No file is a plastic.
II. All cartoon can be file .
For I- From the venn diagram , it is clear that, there is no direct relation of no in between file and plastic, so this conclusion can’t be concluded.
For II- From the venn diagram , it is clear that, there is a direct relation of some in between cartoon and file, but as it is a possibility that all cartoon are file so it is true.
All desks are chairs.
Some chairs are seats.
Some seat are desk.
No table is desk.
I. All desks are seat.
No chairs is table.
For I- From the venn diagram, it is clear that, there is a direct relation of some in between desk and seat, but we cannot say that all desk are seat, it will be true in a possibility.
For II- From the venn diagram, it is clear that, there is a direct relation of no in between desk and table, but there is no certain relation of no in between chair and table so this conclusion can’t be concluded.
Some Ram are Pray.
Some Rat are Pray.
Some pal are Ram.
I. some Rat are pal.
II. Some pal are not rat.
From the venn diagram, we can conclude that both conclusion are false as in conclusion 1 there is no certain relation between Rat and pal and conclusion 2 is negative conclusion and it is also false. But the subject and predicate of both conclusions are same and there is an either-or case as one is positive and other is negative.
