(A) if only conclusion I follows

(B) if only conclusion II follows

(C) if either conclusion I or II follows

(D) if neither conclusion I nor II follows

(E) if both conclusions I and II follow

Ans: E

Since both the premises are universal and one premise is negative, the conclusion must be universal negative. Also, the conclusion should not contain the middle term. So, II follows. I is the converse of II and thus it also holds.

(B) if only conclusion II follows

(C) if either conclusion I or II follows

(D) if neither conclusion I nor II follows

(E) if both conclusions I and II follow
