Because in this case only one of the two diodes can conduct, and your job is to find out which one it is (based on circuit analysis).

The positive terminal of the first battery is connected to the anode while the positive terminal of the second battery is connected to the cathode and because the batteries are equivalent, they canceled out each other. Is it right?
