1. 3; Every doctor is MBBS (A) +At least doctor are phd (I) = A+I= No conclusion. But possibility exist is I. hence conclusion I follows. Again, At least doctors are phd (I) + Each phd is scholars (A) = I+A=I = some doctor are scholars, hence conclusion II follows.

2. 1; Every people is social –> conclusion –>  some social are people (I) + A few people are smart (I)=I+I= No conclusion, Hence conclusion I does not follow. Again, A few people are smart  conclusion –>  some smart are people (I) + No people are fool (E)=I+E=O= some smart are not fool. hence conclusion II follows.

3. 4; A few people are smart (I) + Every smart are intelligent (A)=I+A= I= some people are intelligent –>  conclusion –> some intelligent are people (A) + No people are fool (E) = I + E = O = some intelligent are not fool. Hence conclusion I follows. Again, Every people is a social–> conclusion–> some social are people (I) + No people are fool (E) = I + E = 0 = some social are not fool. Hence conclusion II does not follow.

4. 3; Every cricketer are champions (A) –> conclusion –> some champions are cricketer (I). Hence conclusion II follows, Again,some champions are cricketer (I) + No cricketer is a looser (E) = I + E = O = some champions are not looser, Hence conclusion I follows.

5. 4; There is no negative statement, hence conclusion
I follows, Again, only people are kind (A) + some kind are youth (conversion of third statement, = A = I = No conclusion, Hence conclusion II does not follows. Again, From I and III – Only people are kind (A) + Some youth  are  kind  (I)  = A  +  I  =  No  conclusion.  Hence, conclusion II does not follow.
