 Answer : Option C Explanation :

 Answer : Option C Explanation : No colour is a paint $\rightarrow$conversion $\rightarrow$ No paint is colour (E) + No colour is varnish (E) = E + E = No conclusion. But the conclusion make a complementary pair (IE). Hence, either conclusion I or II follows
7 .

8 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : Some plants are mountains $\rightarrow$ conversion $\rightarrow$ Some mountains are plants. Hence, conclusion I does not follow. Again, Some mountains are plants (I) + All plants are rivers (A) = I + A = I = Some mountains are rivers. Hence, conclusion II follows.
9 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : Some years are weeks  conversion  Some weeks are years. Hence, conclusion I does not follow. The second conclusion is a restatement. Hence, II also does not follow.
10 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : All meteors are planets (A) + All planets are stars (A) = A + A = A = All meteors are stars. Hence, conclusion I follows. Again, No orbit is a star $\rightarrow$ conversion $\rightarrow$ No star is an orbit. Now, All planets are stars (A) + No star is an orbit (E) = A + E = E = No planet is an orbit. Hence, conclusion II follows.
