Q1: Statements: All those political prisoners were released on bail who had gone to jail for reasons other than political dharnas. Bail was not granted to persons involved in murders. Conclusions:
  1. No political - prisoner had committed murder.
  2. Some politicians were not arrested.

A Neither I nor II follows

B Only conclusion II follows

C Either I or II follows

D Only conclusion I follows

E Both I and II follow

ANS:A - Only conclusion I follows

Explanation: According to the statement, the political prisoners can be divided into two groups - those who were released and those who were put in jail for political dharnas. However, no person involved in murder was released. This means that no political prisoner had committed murder. So, I follows. Clearly, II is not directly related to the statement and does not follow.
