Directions (6-10): In each of the following questions two/three statements are given and these statements are followed by two conclusions numbered (1) and (2). You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from commonly known facts. Read the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the two given statements, disregarding commonly known facts. Give answer:
(1) If only (I) conclusion follows           
(2) If only (II) conclusion follows
(3) If either (I) or (II) follows
(4) If neither (I) nor (II) follows
(5) If both (I) and (II) follow
6.   Statements: Some E are C.
All C are B.

Conclusions: I. All E being B is a possibility.
II. Some B are not E.
7. Statements: No T is a S.
