Que. 1

Directions: In the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion among given five conclusions is/are definitely true and then give your answers accordingly.

Statements: M ≥ O = N; I ≥ G > R; N > Z; Z ≥ I

Conclusions:

  1. R < I
  2. O < Z

III.  Z < M

  1. G ≤ Z
  2. M = N

1.Both conclusions I and II are true.

2.Conclusion I, III and IV are true.

3.Both conclusion III and IV are true.

4.Either conclusion I or III is true.

5.Only conclusion V is true.

 

Answer:

Given statements: M ≥ O = N; I ≥ G > R; N > Z; Z ≥ I

On combining: M ≥ O = N > Z ≥ I ≥ G > R

Conclusion:

  1. R < I → True as it is given that I ≥ G > R.
  2. O < Z → Not true as it is given that O = N > Z

III. Z < M → True as it is given M ≥ O = N > Z.

  1. G ≤ Z → True as it is given that Z ≥ I ≥ G,
  2. M = N → Not true as it is given that M ≥ O = N therefore N can be smaller than M as well.

Hence, conclusion I, III and IV are true.

 

Que. 2

Directions: In the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion among given three conclusions is /are definitely true and then give your answers accordingly.

Statements: T < S; S ≤ U; L > U; R ≥ U

Conclusions:

  1. R ≥ S
  2. L > S

III. T < U

 

1.Only III is true

2.Only I is true

3.Only I and III are true

4.Either II or III is true

5.All are true

 

Answer:5

Given statements: T < S; S ≤ U; L > U; R ≥ U

On combining: T < S ≤ U < L; T < S ≤ U ≤ R

Conclusions:

  1. R ≥ S → True (as T < S ≤ U ≤ R → R ≥ S)
  2. L > S → True (as S ≤ U < L → L > S)

III. T < U → True (as T < S ≤ U → T < U)

Therefore, all conclusions are true.

 

Que. 3

Directions: In the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion among given three conclusions is /are definitely true and then give your answers accordingly.

Statements: A ≤ K; K > P; P = O

Conclusions:

  1. A ≥ P
  2. K > O

III. O > A

1.Only III is true

2.Only I and II are true

3.Only II is true

4.None is true

5.All are true

 

Answer:3

Given statements: A ≤ K; K > P; P = O

On combining: A ≤ K > P = O

Conclusions:

  1. A ≥ P → False (as A ≤ K > P → thus clear relation between A and P cannot be determined)
  2. K > O → True (as K > P = O)

III. O > A → False (as A ≤ K > P = O → thus clear relation between A and O cannot be determined)

Therefore, only conclusion II is true.

 

Que. 4

Directions: In the following questions, the symbols $, %, *, & and © are used with the following meaning as illustrated below:

‘A % B’ means ‘A is greater than B’.

‘A $ B’ means ‘A is not greater than B’.

‘A * B’ means ‘A is neither greater than nor equal to B’.

‘A & B’ means ‘A is either greater than or equal to B’.

‘A © B’ means ‘A is neither smaller than nor greater than B’.

Now in each of the following questions assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion/s given below them is/are definitely true?

Statements:

R * A, A $ M, P & M, M $ C

Conclusions:

  1. P % R
  2. A $ P

III. P % C

 

1.Only Conclusion I is true.

2.Both Conclusions I and II are true.

3.Either Conclusion I or III is true.

4.Neither Conclusion I nor III is true.

5.Either Conclusions I or II and III are true.

 

Answer:2

According to the given information,

A is
Symbol % $ * & ©
Meaning > =
Than B

Statements:

R * A, A $ M, P & M, M $ C

→ R

→ P ≥ M ≥ A > R and C ≥ M ≥ A > R

Conclusions:

  1. P % R ⇒ P > R (True)
  2. A $ P ⇒ A ≤ P (True)

III. P % C ⇒ P > C (Can’t be determined since P ≥ M and C ≥ M)

Hence, both the conclusions I and II follow.

 

Que. 5

Statements:

A $ S © D, Z & X © A, C % S

Conclusions:

  1. S % Z
  2. D * C

III. X * C

 

1.Only Conclusion I is true.

2.Both Conclusions II and III are true.

3.Either Conclusion II or III is true.

4.Neither Conclusion I nor III is true.

5.Either Conclusions I or II and III are true.

 

Answer:2

According to the given information,

A is
Symbol % $ * & ©
Meaning > =
Than B

Statement:

A $ S © D, Z & X © A, C % S

→ A ≤ S = D, Z ≥ X = A, C > S

→ Z ≥ X = A ≤ S = D

Conclusions:

  1. S % Z ⇒ S > Z → false (as Z ≥ X = A ≤ S → relation between S and Z cannot be established)
  2. D * C ⇒ D

III. X * C ⇒ X Hence both the conclusion II and III follows.

Que. 6

Statements:

F © G, F % H & V, B $ H

Conclusions:

  1. F % V
  2. G © H

III. V % B

1.Only Conclusion I is true.

2.Both Conclusions I and II are true.

3.Either Conclusion I or III is true.

4.Neither Conclusion I nor III is true.

5.Either Conclusions I or II and III are true.

 

Answer:1

According to the given information,

A is
Symbol % $ * & ©
Meaning > =
Than B

Statement:

F © G, F % H & V, B $ H

→ F = H, F > H ≥ V, B ≤ H

→ G = F > H ≥ V, B ≤ H

Conclusions:

  1. F % V ⇒ F > V → true
  2. G © H ⇒ G = H → false (as G = F > H → G > H)

III. V % B ⇒ V > B → false (as H ≥ V and B ≤ H → B ≤ H ≥ V → relation between V and B cannot be established)

Hence only conclusion I follows.

Que. 7

Statements:

E % J; J & H; H © D; D $ C; D % F

Conclusions:

  1. E % C
  2. F * E

III. J % F

 

1.Only Conclusion I is true.

2.Both Conclusions I and II are true.

3.Both Conclusions II and III are true.

4.Neither Conclusion I nor III is true.

5.Either Conclusions I or II and III are true.

 

Answer:3

According to the given information,

A is
Symbol % $ * & ©
Meaning > =
Than B

Statements:

E % J; H © D; D $ C; D % F; J & H

→ E > J; H = D; D ≤ C; D > F; J ≥ H

→ E > J ≥ H = D > F ≤ C

Conclusions:

  1. E % C ⇒ E > C → False (as E > J ≥ H → E > H and H = D → E > D and D ≤ C → thus clear relation between E and C cannot be determined)
  2. F * E ⇒ F

III. J % F ⇒ J > F → True

Therefore, only conclusions II and III are true.

 

Que. 8

Statements:

Z © Y; Y & V; W % V; W $ R

Conclusions:

  1. W & Y
  2. R % V

III. V $ Z

 

1.Only Conclusion I is true.

2.Both Conclusions I and II are true.

3.Both Conclusions II and III are true.

4.Neither Conclusion I nor III is true.

5.Either Conclusions I or II and III are true.

 

Answer:3

According to the given information,

A is
Symbol % $ * & ©
Meaning > =
Than B

Statements:

Z © Y; Y & V; W % V; W $ R

→ Z = Y; Y ≥ V; W > V; W ≤ R

→ Z = Y ≥ V

Conclusions:

  1. W & Y ⇒ W ≥ Y → False (as Y ≥ V
  2. R % V ⇒ R > V → True

III. V $ Z ⇒ V ≤ Z → True

Therefore, only conclusions II and III are true.

Que. 9

Directions: In the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion among given three conclusions is /are definitely true and then give your answers accordingly.

Statements: 6 < 2; 5> 2; 7 = 6; 8 > 6

III. 6 > 2

 

1.None is true

2.Only I is true

3.Only II is true

4.Only III is true

5.All are true

 

Answer:2

Given statements: 6 < 2; 5 > 2; 7 = 6; 8 > 6

On combining: 5 > 2 > 6 = 7 < 8

Conclusions:

  1. 8 > 7→ True (as 8 > 7)
  2. 8 > 5→ False (as 8 > 7 < 5 → No direct relationship between 5 & 8 can be obtained)

III. 6 > 2→ False (as 2 > 6)

Therefore, only conclusion 1 is true.

 

Que. 10

Directions: In the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion among given three conclusions is /are definitely true and then give your answers accordingly.

Statements: $ < @; @ > %; % = &; &< 4

  2. @ >&

III. 4 > %

 

1.None is true

2.Only I& II are true

3.Only II is true

4.Only II & III are true

5.All are true

 

Answer:4

Given statements: $ < @; @ > %; % = &; &<4

On combining: $ < @ > % = &< 4

Conclusions:

  1. $ ≥ 4→ False (as $ < @ > % = &< 4→ no direct relationship can be obtained between the two)
  2. @ >&→ True (as @ > % = & → @ >&)

III. 4 > % → True (as % = &< 4→ 4 > %)

Therefore, only conclusion II& III are true.
