(B) only 2nd follows
(C) either 1st or 2nd
(D) neither 1st nor 2nd
(E) both 1st and 2nd

1. Statements: A ≤ B < C; A ≥ D; C ≤ F
Conclusions:
I. D < C
II. D = C
(A) only 1st follows
Explanation:

D ≤ A ≤ B < C so D < C
Since D < C is definite, so Answer will not be either or.
2. Statements: M ≥ S = Q < C, M ≤ T
Conclusions:
I. T > Q
II. T = Q
(C) either 1st or 2nd
Explanation:

T ≥ M ≥ S = Q so T ≥ Q
T > Q or T = Q
3. Statements: K < L, K > M, M ≥ N, N > O
Conclusions:
I. O < M
II. O < K
(E) both 1st and 2nd
Explanation:

O < N ≤ M < K so O < M and O < K
4. Statements: P < Q < R, R = S ≤ T
Conclusions:
I. Q > T
II. S > P
(B) only 2nd follows
Explanation:

Q < R = S ≤ T so Q < T
P < Q < R = S so P < S or S > P
5. Statements: H > W, W < M, M ≥ K
Conclusions:
I. K < W
II. H > M
