How can we choose the correct answer with the help of 100-50 rule if the Conclusion statement contains 'maybe' in it?

Hi Aditi, “may be” means it’s a probable conclusion. 50-100 Rule is like a digital switch, YES (Conclusion is correct) or NO (Conclusion is Incorrect), this you cannot tell about all possible combinations using this rule. For that you’ll have to use VENN Diagrams, yes... However, dealing with VENN Diagrams in such cases (To fins “May be” conclusions) shouldn’t be a hassle, to find definite conclusions is. Clear now?
