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

  1. Statement:
    Some buses are trucks. Some trucks are boats. No boat is jeep.
    I. Some jeeps are buses.
    II. Some boats are buses.
    III. Some jeeps are trucks.
    1. None follows
    2. Only I follows
    3. Only II follows
    4. Only III follows
    5. Only II and III follows
Correct Option: A

Some buses are trucks + Some trucks are boats = I + I = No conclusion Hence II and consequently do not follow Some trucks are boats + No boat is jeep = I + E = O = Some trucks are not jeeps. Hence III does not follow.
