Facts for Syllogism: Syllogism is a word which everybody has heard of or even had to use in practice. This modern form of logical reasoning is almost always associated with aptitude tests and assessment training nowadays. But what is the origin of this word, what does syllogisms mean and more important how to solve it?

Solving Method for Syllogisms
Syllogism can be solved in many ways, however the most frequently used method is by using the so called Venn diagrams. Venn diagrams show all possible and hypothetically logical relations between a collection of finite and infinite statements. By means of an overlap between some certain assumptions conclusions can be made using the (in)finite statements. Next a few syllogism examples will follow in which words will be classified and the syllogism will be checked on validity.

Solved Questions For Syllogism

Example: 1. All Canadians are right handed
2. All right handed are opticians
3. Conclusion: Some opticians are Canadian
Solution :To check the validity of this statement first the different terms are appointed.
Subject: Optician
Predicate: Canadian
Middle term: Right handed

Since the two premises (a and b) from the example are valid, the conclusion must be valid two, since it is not possible for the premises to be true and the conclusion to be false.

Example 2:
All mortals die
All men are mortals
Conclusion: All men die
To check the validity of this statement first the different terms are appointed.
Solution :
Subject: Men
Predicate: Die
Middle term: Mortal

This is in general always the case with syllogisms, which is a form of logical reasoning of the deductive reasoning type.
