From these premises...

Ken is a killer and Sam is a saint.
Ken is a killer.

...which of the following conclusions are implied?

a. Sam is a saint.
b. Ken is a killer or Sam is a saint.
c. Sam is a saint or Sam is not a saint.
d. All of the above are implied
e. None of the above are implied.

I am sure that a and c are implied, but am not sure if b is (which would make the correct answer d, all of the above). I am leaning toward just a and c...

Thanks!

    The only one that is stated is "Sam is a saint". There is no "or" in the premises
