Answers :-

1. 3
(2-6):university  does not have requirement
doo rel mo see it .... (i)
university  evaluates  requirement
see jo mo .... (ii)
requirement is necessary – mo pi ga ... (iii)
does university necessary – pi see it .... (iv)
From (i), (ii) and (iv) we have
university –> see ... (v)
From (iii) and (iv) we have,
necessary –> pi ... (vi)
From (i), (ii) and (iii) requirement –> mo ...(vii)
Now, from (iii), (vi) and (vii)
is –> ga .... (viii)
From (ii), (v) and (viii) we have,
evaluates  –> jo .... (ix)
From (i), (iv), (v) and (vi) we have,
does –> it (x)
From (i), (v), (vii) and (x) we have
not/have –> doo/rel


4. 4; have  –> can’t be determined
5. 3; rel –> either not or have
6. 1; ga  –> is

7. 2; All significant are organised conversion Some organised
are significant. Hence conclusion I doesn’t follow. Again,
All  resources  are significant  (A) +  Some resources  are
powerful conversion Some powerful are resources (I) +
All resources are significant (I+A)  –> I  –> Some powerful
are significant (I) + All significant are organised  –> I+A
–> I = Some powerful are organised.
Hence we can conclude that All organised being powerful
is  a  possibility.

8. 5; Some funds are  regular (I) + All  regular are successful
(A) = I + A = Some funds are successful (I). Again, All
exercises are funds + Some funds are successful (I) = A
–> I + A =No conclusion. But All exercises being successful
is  a  possibility.
From statement II: Some funds are regular.
At least some regular are funds.
Conclusion I & II follow.

9. 5; From statement I, II & III. Some successful are exercises.
Hence some successful being exercises is a possibility.
From statement III: All exercises are funds.
Some  funds  can  never  be  exercises  is  a  possibility.
II  follows.

10. 1; No society is standard (E) + No standard is modern (E)
–> E + E  –> No conclusion. But can draw the conclusion
-  Some  societies  being  modern  is  a  possibility.  From
statement I, II & III we can’t conclude - Some societies
can never be official
