i think its universal..

i think its universal..

I am bit confused. is it universal stmt or particular stmt. i too think answer is d

i am not accustomed to using the venn diagram method so cannot comment on that !

@mahendra289 as per syllogism rules the middle term is eliminated in d the conclusion,because in a premise there can be only two terms "subject" and "predicate".. so if i am right the answer should be option d)...bt stil if v consider the middle term rule inapplicable then the answer could be option a)... though my gut inclines more to option d).

how to solve this by rule method and also by venn diagram

1.people who know sanskrit also know malyalam.

2.people who dont know malyalam know kannada.

a)people who dont know sanskkrit and malyalam, know kannada.

b)people who dont know malyalam and sanskrit,know kannada.

c)both a and b

d)none
