Directions (1 – 5): In all the questions that follow, relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. The statements are followed by two conclusions. Give answer accordingly.

  1. Statements: S > N ≤ Q, P ≤ N, I ≤ B = P
    Conclusions:
    I. Q > I
    II. Q = I
    A) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
    B) If only conclusion II is true.
    C) If only conclusion I is true.
    D) If both conclusions are true.
    E) If either conclusion I or II is true.
    Answer & Explanation
    E) If either conclusion I or II is true.
    Explanation:

    Q ≥ N ≥ P ≥ I
    So Q ≥ I
    So either or between two conclusions
  2. Statements: A < E ≤ Q, D > Q < K, E ≥ B
    Conclusions:
    I. K ≥ B
    II. D > B
    A) If only conclusion I is true.
    B) If both conclusions are true.
    C) If either conclusion I or II is true.
    D) If only conclusion II is true.
    E) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
    Answer & Explanation
    D) If only conclusion II is true.
    Explanation:

    K > Q ≥ E ≥ B, so K > B
    D > Q ≥ E ≥ B so L > B
  3. Statements: Q ≥ M ≥ T, T < P, P > E
    Conclusions:
    I. E > M
    II. Q > P
    A) If only conclusion I is true.
    B) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
    C) If either conclusion I or II is true.
    D) If only conclusion II is true.
    E) If both conclusions are true.
    Answer & Explanation
    B) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
    Explanation:

    E < P > T ≤ M, so relation cant be determined between E and M
    Q ≥ T < P, so relation cant be determined between Q and P
  4. Statements: R > A ≥ Z, Q = A, P > R
    Conclusions:
    I. P > Q
    II. Z < P
    A) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
    B) If only conclusion II is true.
    C) If either conclusion I or II is true.
    D) If only conclusion I is true.
    E) If both conclusions are true.
    Answer & Explanation
    E) If both conclusions are true.
    Explanation:

    P > R > A = Q, so P > Q
    Z < R < P, so Z < P
  5. Statements: T ≥ G > K, G > F < H, B > T
    Conclusions:
    I. T > F
    II. B > H
    A) If either conclusion I or II is true.
    B) If only conclusion II is true.
    C) If only conclusion I is true.
    D) If both conclusions are true.
    E) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
    Answer & Explanation
    C) If only conclusion I is true.
    Explanation:

    T ≥ G > F, so T > F
    B > T ≥ G > F < H, so relation cannot be determined between H and B
