1. A*B, [email protected], C%D, D&E
Conclusion: 1.A&E  2.C&E
1.Only conclusion 1 follow
2.Only conclusion 2 follow
3.Either 1 or 2 follow
4.Both follow
5.Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Answer – 2. only conclusion 2nd follow
Explanation :
A>=B<C=D>E (we cannot say anything about A and E but C>E directly follows.)

2. A%B, B*C, [email protected], D%E
Conclusion: 1. A&C 2. A%C
1.Only conclusion 1 follow
2.Only conclusion 2 follow
3.Either 1 or 2 follow
4.Both follow
5.Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Answer – 3. Either 1 or 2 follow.
Explanation :
(A = B >=C < D = E)

3. A&B, B%C, C&D, D\$E
Conclusion: 1. A&D 2.E*C
1.Only conclusion 1 follow
2.Only conclusion 2 follow
3.Either 1 or 2 follow
4.Both follow
5.Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Answer – 1. Only conclusion 1 follow
Explanation :
A>B=C>D<=E
First conclusion directly follows and E>=C doesn’t follow)

4.  [email protected], B*C, C%D, D*E
Conclusion: 1.B%E  2.A&B
1.Only conclusion 1 follow
2.Only conclusion 2 follow
3.Either 1 or 2 follow
4.Both follow
5.Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Answer – 5. Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Explanation :
A<B>=C=D>=E (B = E doesn’t follow always and A>B doesn’t follow)

Answer – 1. Only conclusion 1 follow
Explanation :
P>=Q=R<S<=T (S>Q directly follows and P>=T doesn’t follow)
