How to solve syllogism reasoning easily fast?
From a formal point of view, a conclusion follows NECESSARILY from the premises.
First and foremost have a quick glance at the main rules to solve Syllogism Problems. Go by the options. Each option might contain three sub-statements. First arrive at the conclusion from the first two sub-statements and check whether the same tallies with the given conclusion. If YES, proceed to the second and the third sub-statement to arrive at the second conclusion and if it also tallies with the conclusion given then that is the RIGHT OPTION. You need not check the other options. If NOT then proceed to the next option.
- All + All = All
- All + No = No
- All + Some = No Conclusion
- Some + All = Some
- Some + Some = No Conclusion
- Some + No = Some Not
- No + No = No Conclusion
- No + All = Some not reversed
- No + Some = Some not reversed
- Some tulips are not lily.
- Some flowers are roses.
A) Some roses are not lily. All roses are tulips. All tulips are flowers.
B) All tulips are rose. Some lilies are not roses. Some tulips are flower.
C) All rose are lily. No lily is tulip. No tulip is flower.
D) Some rose are lily. No lily is tulip. Some tulip are flower
From Option A, i) some roses are not lily. All roses are tulips. (First two sub-statements) See the Rule: Some + All = Some => Some tulips are not lily – Conclusion 1. ii) All+All = All => All roses are tulips. All tulips are flowers (last two sub-statements) = All roses are flowers = OR some flower are roses – Conclusion 2.
Statement A is the right answer.
One need not check the other options when one finds the correct option in the Examination Hall.
However let us here check the other options given:
Option B: All + Some = No Conclusion. This option is not valid.
Option C: All + No = No. Conclusion comes that No tulips are lily which is contra to the conclusion 1. This option is not valid.
Option D: Some + No = Some Not. The conclusion from the first two sub-statements arrived is that No rose is tulip and No tulip is rose which is not according to the conclusion given.
- Some batteries are not chargers.
- Some mobiles are not Sims.
A) Some chargers are mobiles. No mobile is battery. All batteries are Sims.
B) All chargers are mobile. Some Mobile is battery. All batteries are Sims.
C) No charger is mobile. All mobile is battery. No battery is sim.
D) No charger is mobile. No mobile is battery. All batteries are Sims.
In Option C i) No+All = some not reversed => No charger is mobile. All mobile is battery. = Some batteries are not chargers – As per Conclusion 1. All+No = No => (as per the 2nd and 3rd sub-statements of Option C = All mobile is battery. No battery is sim. =No mobile is sim, and hence when no mobile is sim; and hence some mobiles are not Sims – as per Conclusion 2.
C Option is the correct Answer.
Some + No = Some Not which comes exactly to conclusion 1 after analysis of the first two statements i.e. some batteries are not chargers. But if we verify the second and the third sub-statements No + All = some not reversed which comes to some Sims are not mobiles but this is quite a reverse to conclusion 2. Hence this option is not right.
All + Some = No Conclusion. Hence this option is not right.
No + No = No Conclusion. Hence this option is not right.”
Some Methods To Solve Syllogism
Test takers generally do not use this method of explaining the syllogism questions. The test taker needs to understand that the set of premises and based on the ability to understand the assumptions verbally drives them to conclusion.
Venn Diagram Method
The wind diagram method allows the students to solve the questions diagrammatically. Firstly they need to draw the diagram based on the given statements and then they have to check which conclusion follow the given information with the help of diagram. If the conclusion is fulfilling one condition but does not align with the other condition represented then it will not be considered as a proper conclusion. Lastly final conclusion should be made only if it follows all the given conditions.

As you proceed with the Venn diagram the explanation would be much clearer to you and more simplified as well. Our teachers provide the students with special syllogism tricks pdf which you can check out.
- One of the biggest mistakes of our human community is we imagine. Please don’t take it literally but do adapt this non-imagining theory while solving the syllogism questions. Imagining or assuming anything or any situation which is not mentioned in the question would lead you to a mistake.
