    Conclusions:
    I. L > I
    II. L = I
    Answer & Explanation
    (C) either 1st or 2nd
    Explanation:

    L ≥ A ≥ M ≥ I
    So L ≥ I

  2. Statements: B < W ≤ E, L > E < K, W ≥ O
    Conclusions:
    I. K ≥ O
    II. L > O
    Answer & Explanation
    (B) only 2nd follows
    Explanation:

    K > E ≥ W ≥ O, so K > O
    L > E ≥ W ≥ O so L > O
  3. Statements: Q ≥ E > K, E > F < A, P > Q
    Conclusions:
    I. Q > F
    II. P > A
    Answer & Explanation
    (A) only 1st follows
    Explanation:

    Q ≥ E > F, so Q > F
    P > Q ≥ E > F < A, so relation cant be determined between P and A

    Conclusions:
    I. E > B
    II. A > P
    Answer & Explanation
