Statements : All boys are honest. Sachin is honest.

Conclusions :
I. Sachin is a boy.
II. All honest persons are boys.

A. Only conclusion I follows

B. Only conclusion II follows

C. Either I or II follows

D. Neither I nor II follows

E. Both I and II follow

Answer: Option D

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Both the premises are A type propositions. So, the middle term 'honest' forming the predicate in each is not distributed in either. Since the middle term is not distributed even once, no definite conclusion follows.
