Correct Answer - Option 2 : Some white X-brand cars with radial tyres are parked here.

Given statements: 

1. All X-brand cars parked here are white.

2. Some of them have radial tyres.

3. All X-brand cars manufactured after 1986 have radial Lyres

4. All cars are not X-brand.

Now, let us examine the conclusions:

i) Only white cars are parked here. → False (as all cars are not X - brand)

ii) Some white X-brand cars with radial tyres are parked here. → True (this can be concluded from statement 1 and 2)

iii) Cars other than X-brand cannot have radial tyres. → False (as it is possible but not definite)

iv) Most of the X-brand ears are manufactured before 1986. → False (as it is possible but not definite)

Hence, 'Some white X-brand cars with radial tyres are parked here.' is the correct answer.
