Only red and blue bears, so green bears. II and III gone, so the answer is I. Also since there are no blue small bears, all the small bears are therefore red.

Answer is B

Below is right didn't read the LARGE PART.

Large bear = red or blue (cannot be green)
Small bear = red or green (cannot be blue)

Therefore i and ii are possible.

The answer is (A).

"All large bears are either red or blue" --> no green (or any other color) large bears, discard (iii);
As for (i) a small red bear and (ii) a small green bears, there are
 no restrictions on them, hence they might exist (we only know that there are no small blue bears).

Answer: A.
