**There is no running away from syllogism questions, especially in competitive exams such as IBPS Clerk Exam. Syllogism questions form an integral part of IBPS Clerk 2017. Syllogism questions are the most time-consuming questions asked from the logical reasoning section of IBPS Clerk. Syllogism questions can be easily solved by using syllogism tricks and helps you save a lot of time in IBPS Clerk Exam.**

In this post, we have discussed a few frequently asked syllogism questions and have solved them using syllogism tricks. Before moving forward, quickly revise the basis of syllogism and learn all the terms that are used in syllogism questions.

Syllogism Questions - Basic Concepts and Syllogism Terminology |

**Module 1:**

Module 1 of syllogism talks about syllogism questions on conclusions. Conclusions are the statements which are true in all the cases. Hence, Module 1 is the most frequently asked module in IBPS Clerk.

Given below are two examples on syllogisms that are solved using syllogism tricks to help you save time in IBPS Clerk.

### Example 1: Syllogism Tricks To Solve Syllogism Questions in IBPS Clerk

**Syllogism Question:**

All stamps are Pockets

Some pockets are buckets

All buckets are tubes

**Conclusions:**

1. Some tubes are Stamps

2. Some buckets are Stamps

3. Some tubes are packets

The best way to solve these questions is to draw Venn diagrams.

**Solution:**

**Basic Venn Diagram**

1. Some tables are stamps:

The circle T and S don’t overlap each other. They are completely far from each other.

Therefore, some tubes can’t be stamps. Hence, this conclusion is false.

2. Some buckets are Stamps:

The circle B and S don’t overlap each other. They are completely far from each other. Therefore, some buckets can’t be stamps. Hence, this conclusion is false.

**3. Some tubes are packets:**

**The circle T and P overlap each other. Hence, the conclusion is true.**

**Second Condition Venn Diagram**

*Note: A conclusion should be true in all the conditions. If, a conclusion doesn't satisfy anyone condition/Venn diagram then, that conclusion cannot be taken into consideration.

### Example 2: Syllogism Tricks To Solve Syllogism Questions in IBPS Clerk

**Syllogism**

**Question:**

All roads are cars

No car is tree

Some trees are jungles

All jungles are rivers

**Conclusions**

1. Some rivers are roads

2. Some jungles are roads

3. Some cars are roads

4. No jungle is road

**Solution:**

**Basic Venn Diagram**

**Second Condition Venn Diagram**

Let us now solve this Syllogism Question with BOTH the diagrams in mind.

1. Some rivers are roads

The circle Ro and Ri don’t overlap each other. They are completely far from each other. Therefore, some rivers can’t be roads. Hence, this conclusion is false.2. Some jungles are roads

The circle j and Ro don’t overlap each other. They are completely far from each other. Therefore, some jungles can’t be roads. Hence, this conclusion is false.

**3.**Some cars are roads

**The circle Ro and C overlaps each other. Hence, conclusion three is true.**

4. No jungle is road

The circle Ro and J don’t overlap each other. They are completely far from each other in the basic diagram. However, according to the second diagram, all roads are jungles. Therefore, no jungle is a road stands incorrect. Hence, this conclusion is false.

**Solve this syllogism question using the syllogism tricks and leave your answers in the comment section below.**
