## Types of Syllogism

In order to master the topic, you should practice more and more questions related to different types of syllogism:

• Basic Syllogism
• Complimentary pairs (Either – Or Case)
• Only – Only a few
• Possibility based Syllogism
• Coded Syllogism
• Reverse Syllogism

1. Basic Syllogism: In this type of syllogism questions, the statements are 100% true and the conclusion must be 100% true.

Example:

Statement: All Ball is Oval. Some Oval is Circle.

Conclusion: Some Ball is Circle.

The above conclusion is definitely false as we cannot derive any relationship between Ball and Circle from the above statement.
