Homework Help: English

I am a bit stumped here. Working on syllogisms. To be a valid syllogism, the conclusion must be proven by the reasons. We are to decide if te following are valid or invalid.

1. All zebras are striped animals. No zebras are polar bears. Therefore, no polar bears are striped animals.

My answer- Originally I was going to say valid but after breaking down the sentence I then see it as invalid.

2. All clowns are funny individuals. Some sad people are clowns. Therefore, some sad people are funny individuals.

My answer-I feel this is valid.
