Solution

## The correct option is D III followsAll documents are files (A) + some files are papers (I) = A + I = No conclusion. Hence, conclusion I, II and IV do not follow. However, I and conversion of IV make a complementary pair. Hence, either I or IV follows. Again, some files are papers (I) + All papers are certificates (A) I + A = I = Some files are certificates → conversion → some certificates are files. Hence, conclusion III follows. Only conclusion III follows.
