CAT Syllogism

CAT Syllogism Example

Statement 1: All cats have whiskers. Statement 2: Fluffy is a cat.

Conclusion: What can we infer from the given statements?

Answer: Fluffy has whiskers.

Explanation: The syllogism question presents two statements: “All cats have whiskers” and “Fluffy is a cat.” By combining these statements, we can draw the logical conclusion that Fluffy, being a cat, would also possess whiskers. This inference is based on the fact that all cats, according to the first statement, have whiskers. Therefore, the answer to the syllogism question is that Fluffy has whiskers.
