Q > K, no relation between M and T, no relation between M and Q, no relation between M and T
4. Which of the following expressions may not be true if the expression ‘Z ≥ Y = W ≤ X’ is definitely true?
A) W ≤ Z
B) X ≥ Z
C) Y ≤ X
D) only B and C
E) All are true
B) X ≥ Z
Explanation:

Z ≥ Y = W , so Z ≥ W, so A is true
Y = W ≤ X, so Y ≤ X, so C is true
