Any hotel is not a house.

Conclusion – I. Some hotels are houses.

We can see from the diagrams that house is not related to any of the objects here. Some of pole & hotels are covered with each other’s regions, so all the poles are hotels. So, some hotels are poles.

Only conclusion II is the logical answer from the above diagrams.
