All hill-stations have a lake. Ooty has two lakes.
Which of the statement(s) below is/are logically valid and can be inferred from the above sentences?
(i) Ooty is not a hill-station. (ii) No hill-station can have more than one lake.
(A) (i) only
(B) (ii) only
(C) both (i) and (ii)
(D) neither (i) nor (ii)
Given statement doesn’t say that –
“All hill-stations have a lake” but any place having a lake is surely a hill station.
—> Ooty may or may not be a hill station
Hence (i) is false
—> Here, it is not a compulsion that a place need to have exactly one lake to be a hill station.
Hence (ii) is also false
