Answers :-

1. 2; No red is black (E) + some black are fruits (I) = E + I =
O* = Some fruits are not red. Hence, conclusion I does
not follow. Again, Some black are fruits (I) + No fruit is
basket (E) = I + E = O = Some black are not basket. Hence,
conclusion II follows.

2.4; All  Cameras  are  tablets  (A)  +  Some  tablets  are
batteries (I) = A + I = No, Conclusion, Hence, I does not
Again, No phone is Camera (E) + All Cameras are tablets
(A) = E + A = O* = Some tablets are not phones. Now,
Some tablets are batteries (I)
Some batteries
are tablets (I) + Some tablets are not phones (O) = I + O =
No conclusion. Hence, II does not follow.

3.3; All desks are tables (A) + No table is a pen (E) = A + E
= E = No desk is a pen (E) + All pens are pencils (A) = E +
A  =  O*=  Some  pencils  are  not  desks.  Hence,  both
conclusions do not follow. But they make a complimentary
pair (I - E). Hence, either conclusion I or II follows.

4.1; All pets are wild  conversion
Some wild are pets.
Now, Some wild are pets (I) + All pets are animals (A) = I
+ A = I = Some wild are animals. Hence, Conclusion I
follows,  conclusion  II  does  not  follow  because  of  the
second statement.

5.5; Some poems are toys (I) + All toys are black (A) = I +
A  =  I  =  Some  poems  are  black.  Hence,  conclusion  I
follows. Conclusion II follows by converting the second
