Solution

If neither conclusion I nor II follows
Talent means a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing.
From the statements given, we cannot come to the conclusion I and as only the sister is a basketball player, we cannot conclude that we all are a sportsman.
Hence neither conclusion follows.
