Directions (6 to 8): In each of the following question below are given some statements followed by some conclusions.

All waters are boats.
A. Only conclusion I follows
B. Only conclusion II follows
C. Either I or II follows
D. Neither I nor II follows
E. Both I and II follow
S6. Ans. (D)
Sol. The first premise is A type and distributes the subject. So, the middle term ‘waters’ which forms its predicate, is not distributed. The second premise is I type and does not distribute either subject or predicate. So, the middle term ‘waters’ forming its subject is not distributed. Since the middle term is not distributed even once in the premises, no definite conclusion follows.
Q7. Statements:
No bat is ball.
No ball is wicket.
No bat is wicket.
All wickets are bats.
A. Only conclusion I follows
B. Only conclusion II follows
C. Either I or II follows
D. Neither I nor II follows
E. Both I and II follow
S7. Ans. (D)
Sol. Since both the premises are negative, no definite conclusion follows.
Q8. Statements:
Every minister is a student.
Every student is inexperienced.
Every minister is inexperienced.
Some inexperienced are students.
A. Only conclusion I follows
B. Only conclusion II follows
C. Either I or II follows
D. Neither I nor II follows
E. Both I and II follow
S8. Ans. (E)
Sol. Every’ is equivalent to ‘All’. Thus, since both the premises are universal and affirmative, the conclusion must be universal affirmative and should not contain the middle term. So, I follows. II is the converse of the second premise and thus it also holds.
