### In the question the given statements areStatement 1: If you exercise regularly, then you have a healthy body.Statement 2: If you have a healthy body, then you have more energy.Here, we have to use law of syllogism to draw a conclusion.Let statement (1) be p, statement (2) be q and the conclusion be r.In syllogism if p equals q and q equals r then p equals r.So, the conclusion will be If you exercise regularly, then you have more energy.Therefore, the correct option is b, i.e., If you exercise regularly, then you have more energy.

In Law of Syllogism if a statement p equals q and if q equals r, then p equals r whereas in Law of Detachment if a statement p equals q where p is true then q is also true.
