Solution.


Ans 1. Only either 1 or 3 follows 

For conclusion 1 and 3 = Some + No = No, so either 1 or 3 follows
For conclusion 2, All + No = no conclusion
For conclusion 4, All + No = no conclusion

Ans 2. Only conclusion 1 and 3 follows

All + All = Some, By doing reverse conversion conclusion 1 follows
In conclusion nothing can be determined
In conclusion 3 , All + All = Some, By doing reverse conversion conclusion 1 follows
In conclusion 4, no conclusion

Ans 3. If only conclusion 1 follows 

Clearly conclusion 1 follows the statement and 2 do not follow

Ans 4. If neither 1 nor 2 follows 

In statement there is nothing specification regarding healthy people and evening walk, so both do not follow.

Ans 5. If either argument 1 or 2 is strong 

Both argument are strong but contradict each other, So either 1 or 2

Ans 6. If only argument 1 is strong 

1st argument is strong because there is a purpose to reduce the consumption and second one is harmful.

Ans 7. Northwest 


Ans 8. Son

Boy’s maternal uncle = Brother of boy’s mother
Woman = Sister of mother’s brother
So, woman = Mother of the boy

Ans 9. BEAT

Pattern = letter – 5
G – 5 = B
