1) if only conclusion I follows.

2) if only conclusion II follows.

3) if either conclusion I or II follows.

4) if neither conclusion I nor II follows.

5) if both conclusions I and II follow

1 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : Some questions are answerable (I) conversion Some answerable are questions (I) + All questions are symbols (A) = I + A = I = Some answerable are symbols. Hence, the possibility in I exists. Hence, conclusion I follows. But there is no negative statement. Thus any negative conclusion does not follow. Hence, conclusion II does not follow.
2 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : Some applications are easy (I) + All easy are dynamics (A) = I + A = I = Some applications are dynamics. Hence, conclusion II does not follow.Again, No game is an application (E) + Some applications are dynamics (I) = E + I = O* = Some dynamics are not games. Hence, conclusion I does not follow.
3 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : Conclusion I does not follow from first statement. But the possibility in conclusion II exists from third statements. Hence, conclusion II follows.
4 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : Some details are beneficial (I) + All beneficial are helpful (A) = I + A = I = Some details are helpful (I).Now, Some informations are not details (O) + Some details are helpful (I) = O + I = No conclusion. Hence, conclusion I does not follow.Again, the possibility in II exists from second statement.
5 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : Some statements are paragraphs (I) + No paragraph is a chapter (E) = I + E = O = Some statements are not chapters. Hence, conclusion I follows.Now, No word is a statement (E) + Some statements are paragraphs (I) = E + I = O* = Some paragraphs are not words. Again, No paragraph is a chapter  conversion No chapter is a paragraph (E) + Some paragraphs are not words (O) = E + O = No conclusion
