if neither I, nor II follows.


Neither of the two conclusions follows. The statement says that the ideas that were given by our ancestors were then discarded for their viability but presently they turn out to be functional and inevitable. Conclusion I do not follow since the statement does not talk about the classification of ideas. Conclusion II does not follow because the statement does not say that there are no new ideas in the present.
