Statements : 1. Most clocks are fans ( red portion in the diagram below)

                    2. Some fans are walls ( Black portion in the diagram below)



Conclusions: 1. Some walls are fans - true  ( black portion in the diagram above). Since some fans are walls so it would be always true.

                    2. Some clocks are walls - false ( You can see in the diagram, no clock is fan )

no , first one is true - because in your diagrma - "all walls are fan is equivalent to say some walls are fan"  because some means- at least one or not all or all.
