6-7 Statements:
Some institutes are banks.

6. Conclusions:
I. Some institutes are not schools.
II. All academies being banks is a possibility.
a) if only conclusion I follows.
b) if only conclusion II follows.
c) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
e) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow.

Answer b) if only conclusion II follows. All institutes are academic. All academics are schools = A + A = A = All institute are schools. Hence I does not follow. Some institute are banks (I) -> conversion -> Some banks are institute (I) + All institutes are academics = I + A = I = Some banks are academics. Hence the possibility of II exists.

7. Conclusions:
I. All banks can never be schools.
II. Any bank which is an institute is a school.
a) if only conclusion I follows.
b) if only conclusion II follows.
c) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
e) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow.

Answer b) if only conclusion II follows. Some banks are academics = All academics are schools = I + A = I Some banks are schools. This does not lead us to I. II follows because All institutes are school.

8. Statements:
All circles are squares.
Some squares are rectangles.
Conclusions:
I. All rectangles being squares is a possibility.
II. All circles being rectangles is a possibility.
a) if only conclusion I follows.
b) if only conclusion II follows.
c) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
e) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow.

Answer e) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow. The possibilities exist because we don’t have any negative statements.

9. Statements:
All machines are computers.
Conclusions:
I. No computer is a gadget.
II. All computers being gadgets is possibility.
a) if only conclusion I follows.
b) if only conclusion II follows.
c) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
e) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow.

Answer d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows. No gadget is a machine + All machines are computer = E + A = Q* = Some computers are not gadget. This rules out the possibility of II. As for I, it may be true but we can’t say so with certainty.

10. Statements:
Some paintings are drawings.
All sketches are paintings.
Conclusions:
I. All sketches are drawings.
II. Some sketches being drawings is a possibility.
a) if only conclusion I follows.
b) if only conclusion II follows.
c) if either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.
d) if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II follows.
e) if both conclusion I and conclusion II follow.
