Answers :-

 

1.2; Some trains are jets + All jets are scooters = I+A=I = some trains are scooters. Thus, conclusion II follows. Some buses are trains + some trains are jets= I+I=no conclusion. Therefore conclusion I does not follow

2.1; No conditioner is a soap + some soaps are detergents= E+I=O = some detergent are not conditioners. Hence, I follows. But we can't proceeds further. Hence, II does not follow.

 

3.5; From I, we get, T Q S R P or T R S Q P. Thus I is
not sufficient.
From II,we get, T Q. So II alone is not sufficient.
From I and  II we get, T Q S R  P. Thus,  both  the
statements are necessary.

4.4; From I, we get, P > K A. Thus, I is not sufficient.
From II, we get, A M > J. Thus, II is not sufficient.
Thus, neither I nor II sufficient.

5.1; From I ,we get, R's rank from Top = 5+5= 10 ,
R’s rank from bottom = 40-(5+5) = 30
From II we did not get, any relevent information about R
