1.2; All magazine are novel (A) + Some paper are novel (I)  
conversion ---> Some novel are paper (I) = A + I = No
conversion. So, Some magazine are paper does not follow.
Again, Some books are magazine (I) + All magazine are
novel (A) --->  I + A = I (Some books are novel). Hence,
conclusion II follows.

2.5; Some labor are intelligent (I) ---> conversion ---> Some
intelligent are labor (I) + All labor are migrants (A) = I + A
= I (Some intelligent are migrants). Hence, conclusion I follows.
Again, Some intelligent are migrants (I) ---> conversion
Some migrants are intelligent (I) + No intelligent are
women (E) = I + E = O (Some migrants are not women).
Hence, conclusion II follows.

3.5; All labor are migrants (A) + All migrants are rural (A)  
A + A ---> A (All labor are rural). Hence, conclusion I follows.
Again, Some labor are intelligent (I) + All labor are rural
(A)  ---> Some intelligent are rural. But conclusion II is true
in  possibility.  Hence All  rural  being  intelligent  is  a
possibility is true.

4.1; No cola are sweet (E) ---> conversion ---> No sweet are
cola (E) + all cola are cold (A)  ---> E + A = O* (Some cold
are not sweet). Hence, conclusion I follows.
Again, All Pepsi are cola (A) + Some cola are hot (I) = No
conclusion. Hence, All Pepsi are hot does not follows.

5.5; All Pepsi are cola (A) + Some cola are hot (I) = A + I (No
conclusion), Hence, Some Pepsi are hot does not follows.
Again, Some cola are hot (I) ---> conversion ---> Some hot
are cola (I) + No cola are sweet (E)  ---> I + E = O (Some hot
are not sweet). Hence, conclusion II follows.
