Questions penned by Yogit

Direction: Q (1– 5)
P&Q means ‘P’ is greater than ‘Q’.
P%Q means ‘P’ is smaller than ‘Q’.
[email protected] means ‘P’ is either greater than or equal ‘Q’.
P\$Q means ‘P’ is either smaller than or equal to ‘Q’.
P#Q means ‘P’ is equal to ‘Q’

1. Statements: – A%B, B\$C, C#D, D&E
Conclusions: – 1) A&E 2) B#D
1) If only conclusion 1 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 – 4) If neither conclusion 1 nor 2 is true
Explanation :
A<B<=C=D>E (We can’t say anything about A and E and D>= B)

2. Statements: – [email protected], B\$C, C#D, D&E
Conclusions: – 1) A & C 2) C & E
1) If only conclusion 1 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 :
A>=B <=C = D>E ( A >=C we can’t say but C is always greater than E)

3. Statements: – A&B, B\$C, C&P, [email protected]
Conclusions: – 1) D&B 2) A&P
1) If only conclusion 1 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 – 1) If only conclusion 1 is true
Explanation :
D>=A>B<=C>P (first conclusion directly follows and second doesn’t follow)

4. Statements: – A\$B, C&D, D#B, A\$E
Conclusions: – 1) [email protected] 2) C&B
1) If only conclusion 1 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 – 5) If both conclusions 1 and 2 are true
Explanation :
E>=A<=B=D<C  (both conclusions directly follows)

5. Statements: – B&A, C#B, D#C, D&E
Conclusions: – 1) A&C 2) B&E
1) If only conclusion 1 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 :
A<B=C=D>E  (second directly follows)

6. What should come in place of question mark to make R> T always true?
P = R > Q ? T <S
a) >
b) <
c) >=
d) =
e) both a and c
Answer – e) both a and c
Explanation :
P = R >Q >T <S and P = R>Q>=T<S in both cases R will be greater than T

7. Which of the following should be placed in the blank spaces in order to complete the given expression such that A < P is always false.
_ <= _ < _ >_
a) PNCA
b) ALPC
c) PNAL
d) PLAC
e) None of these
Explanation :
P<=N<A<L (here A is always greater than P)

8. Which of the following expression is definitely true if the expression A>B=C>D<E is always true?
a) B>E
b) D<A
c) E>C
d) D =B
e) None of these
Explanation :
Directly follows from the given expression

9. Which of the following symbol replace the question mark (?) in the given expression in order to make the expression A>C and E<B definitely true?
A > B ? C >=D = E
a) <=
b) >
c) <
d) >=
e) either a or b
Explanation :
A > B > C >=D = E (A>C and E<B always true)

10. What should come in place of blank spaces to make A>C and C<D always true in the expression A_B_C_D.
a) >=, >, =
b) >=, <, =
c) >=,>, <
d) =, >=, =
e) None of these
