# How to solve Syllogism (3 statement) Quickly Shortcut trick

Here I have discussed how to solve syllogism with 3 statements quickly. This time we are discussing a more difficult type of syllogism in which 3 statements are given and based on these three statements, we are given 4 conclusions and we have to select the right conclusion.
How to Solve 3 Statement Syllogism:

Here is the example:

Statement:

1. Some newspapers are computers.

2. Some computers are televisions.

3. No television is a magazine.

Conclusions:

1. No newspaper is a magazine.

2. No computer is a magazine.

3. Some computers are not magazine.

4. Some newspapers are televisions.

Solution:

Combine statement 1 and statement 2 and cancel out computers and adding, we get

Some+ some =no conclusion

Now combine statement 2 and statement 3 and calcel out television and adding the qualifiers (some, no) in these statements, we get

Some + no= some not

Means

Some computers are not magazines. (this is conclusion 3. So conclusion 3 follows)

{Note: suppose if we found ‘some not reversed’ in the above statements 2 and 3, then after combining them and cancelling ‘television’ from both, we will get

Some magazines are not computers.}

Make a list of all types of conclusions that can be derived from the statements given in the question using table 1 given in the previous post ‘how to solve syllogism quickly’.

Now check out the conclusions given in the question

Conclusion 1- doesn’t follow.

Conclusion 2-doesn’t follow.
