Given below are two statements and four conclusions drawn based on the statements.

Statement $1$: Some bottles are cups.

Statement $2$: All cups are knives.

Conclusion $\text{I}$ : Some bottles are knives.

Conclusion $\text{II}$ : Some knives are cups.

Conclusion $\text{III}$ : All cups are bottles.

Conclusion $\text{IV}$ : All knives are cups.

Which one of the following options can be logically inferred?

1. Only conclusion $\text{I}$ and conclusion $\text{II}$ are correct
2. Only conclusion $\text{II}$ and conclusion $\text{III}$ are correct
3. Only conclusion $\text{II}$ and conclusion $\text{IV}$ are correct
4. Only conclusion $\text{III}$ and conclusion $\text{IV}$ are correct

Given that,

• $\text{Statement 1} :$ Some bottles are cups. • $\text{Statement 2} :$ All cups are knives. Now, we can make a conclusion based on the above two Venn diagrams.

• $\text{Conclusion I}:$ Some bottles are knives ${\color{Green}{-\text{True.}}}$
• $\text{Conclusion II}:$ Some knives are cups ${\color{Green}{-\text{True.}}}$
• $\text{Conclusion III}:$ All cups are bottles ${\color{Red}{-\text{False.}}}$
• $\text{Conclusion IV}:$ All knives are cups ${\color{Red}{-\text{False.}}}$
