Given the statements:

  • Statement $1:$ Some soaps are clean.

  • Statement $2:$ All clean objects are wet.

Based on the above two statements we can draw the Venn diagram.

Now, we can conclude that, based on the above two Venn diagrams.

  • Conclusion I: Some clean objects are soaps. ${\color{Green}{-\text{True}}}$
  • Conclusion II: No clean object is a soap.${\color{Red}{-\text{False}}}$
  • Conclusion III: Some wet objects are soaps.${\color{Green}{-\text{True}}}$
  • Conclusion IV: All wet objects are soaps.${\color{Red}{-\text{False}}}$

$\therefore$ Only conclusion I or conclusion III are correct.

Correct Answer $:\text{D}$
