Best answer

Given statements are,

  • $\text{Statement 1}:$ All entrepreneurs are wealthy.

  • $\text{Statement 2}:$ All wealthy are risk seekers.

  • $\text{Conclusion I}:$ All risk seekers are wealthy.

From the above Venn diagram, not all risk seekers are wealthy. So, $\text{conclusion I}$ is false.

  • $\text{Conclusion II}:$ Only some entrepreneurs are risk seekers.

From the above Venn diagram, all entrepreneurs are risk seekers. So, $\text{conclusion II}$ is also false.

So, the correct answer is $(C).$

To prove a conclusion false, one Venn diagram is fine. But to prove a conclusion True you should say no contradicting Venn diagram is possible.

Yes sir. But in conclusion II, they said only some, and using the $3^{\text{rd}}$ Venn diagram we are able to contradict.
