If a company owns (4) trademarks, and they all contain the same stylized graphical logo for the name of distinction, but the owner sells (2) of the marks containing the graphical representation in the registration, can the original owner continue to use the other two trademarks therefore causing confusion?

Example: 1) Superciliouz® Apples 2) Superciliouz® Bananas 3) Superciliouz® Grapes 4) Superciliouz® Oranges

Each has a stylized graphical logo for the word Superciliouz and text for the accompanying words like apples, oranges, bananas, grapes.

If the seller sells the Assignee "Superciliouz® Grapes & Superciliouz® Oranges and agrees in the Assignment Agreement never to use the trademark after the contract date,m can the original owner continue to use Superciliouz® Apples & Superciliouz® Bananas as this would indeed cause confusion in the eyes of the public?

Generally, the owner can't use the trademark anymore. Trademark is a representation of a product of a company and if he sold the trademark to a 2nd party. The 2nd party has now the exclusive rights over the trademark.
