4) If neither conclusion 1 nor 2 is true

5) If both conclusions 1 and 2 are true

Answer –**5) If both conclusions 1 and 2 are true**

**Explanation :**

P>=Q>R=S (Both conclusion directly follows)

**Statements:**– P $ Q, Q * R, R % S, S#T

5) If both conclusions 1 and 2 are true

Answer –**4) If neither conclusion 1 nor 2 is true**

**Explanation :**

P<=Q<R=S>T (we can’t say anything about Q and T and Clearly R is always greater than P)

3) If either conclusion 1 or 2 is true

4) If neither conclusion 1 nor 2 is true

5) If both conclusions 1 and 2 are true

Answer –**3) If either conclusion 1 or 2 is true**

2) If only conclusion 2 is true

3) If either conclusion 1 or 2 is true

4) If neither conclusion 1 nor 2 is true

5) If both conclusions 1 and 2 are true

Answer –**2) If only conclusion 2 is true**

**Explanation :**

P <= Q = R< S >T (clearly S is greater than P)

**Direction: Q(6 – 8)**

P % Q means P is not greater than Q

P δ Q means P is neither greater nor smaller than Q

P # Q means P is neither greater nor equal to Q

P $ Q means P is not smaller than Q

P @ Q means P is neither smaller nor equal to Q

**Statements:**– P $ Q, Q @R, R δ T

**Conclusions:**– 1) P @T 2) Q δ T 3) T % Q
