now, some buildings have forests + forests have rain = some buildings may have rain (I + A = I).hence, EBA are logically related.

  1. (b) if all teachers cheat and some teachers beat = some teachers beat and cheat (As shown in the shaded portion) hence, BDF are logically related.

  12. (c) considering BDE, we find that to draw conclusion from BD, they have to recordered as DB, i.e., all shrubs have roses + all roses have nectar = all shrubs have nectar (A + A = A). Hence BDE are logically related.
  13. (a) considering DFA, to draw conclusion from DF, they have to be aligned and reordered as all springs are autumus + no autumns are seasons (After converting) = no spring is season. hence, DFA are logically related.
  14. (c) set of satements given by C is valid.
  15. (d) A + A = A. Hence, all pilots are trained + all who are trained are professional = all pilots are professional.

in the question, it is given that either ravana is a demon or he is a hero. it means, (if) ravana is not a demon (then) ravana is a hero. hence, BD and CA follow.

  1. (d) C is the conclusion of statement B and A.
