    Mam view answer mai diagram se explain kr skte kya syllogism k ques ap log if possible.

    I love the thing that u ppl always reply.. thanks to be here for us

    1. Nikki

      I have same issue

    2. Do not here means definitely does not follow. like

      All A are B. No B is C. Some C are D

      Conclusion I: Some A and D —– This can follow or cannot – It is not definite, so we cannot say that it DEFINITELY DOES NOT follow.
      Conclusion II: Some A are C. —— This is definitely false na?. So we can say that it DEFINITELY DOES NOT follow.
      Conclusion I: Some B and D —– This can follow or cannot – It is not definite, so we cannot say that it DEFINITELY DOES NOT follow.

      Neither I nor II means – we cannot say that both DEFINITELY DOES NOT follow.
      Both I and II means – we can say that both DEFINITELY DOES NOT follow.

        1. No

          All B are D ho bhi jata hai to No B is C follow kar rha hai na (cz some C are D hai)

          If it was — All D are B – then definitely not follow hoga
