question divider line

The logic problems in this set present you with three true statements:

Fact 1, Fact 2, and Fact 3.

Then, you are given three more statements (labeled I, II, and III), and you must determine which of these, if any, is also a fact.

One or two of the statements could be true; all of the statements could be true; or none of the statements could be true.

Choose your answer based solely on the information given in the first three facts.

Fact 1: Islands are surrounded by water.

Fact 2: Maui is an island.

Fact 3: Maui was formed by a volcano.

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

There is not enough information to support any of the statements.

Robert is known to have a minvan, but it is not known which of his vehicles is red.

Robert may have a pickup or sport utility vehicle, so the second statement cannot be supported.

There is no way to know if Robert's favorite color is red (statement III).
