Questions penned by Yogit

Direction: Q(1 – 5)
P & Q – P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q
[email protected] – P is neither greater than nor equal to Q
P*Q – P is not smaller than Q
P\$Q – P is not greater than Q
P%Q – P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q

1. Statements: – A*B, B\$C, C%D, D&E
Conclusions: – a) A&C b) D&B
1) Only conclusion 1 follows
2) Only conclusion 2 follows
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 (we can’t say relate A and C and D is greater than and equal to B)

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

3. Statements: – A%B, B*C, [email protected], D&E
Conclusions: – a) C*A b) [email protected]
1) Only conclusion 1 follows
2) Only conclusion 2 follows
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 (Directly C>=A and no relation between B and E)

4. Statements: – M*N, N%O, O%A, A&B
Conclusions: – M&B b) N\$A
1) Only conclusion 1 follows
2) Only conclusion 2 follows
3) Either 1 or 2 follow
4) Both follow
5) Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Answer – 1) Only conclusion 1 follows
Explanation :
M>=N=O=A>B (M>N and N= A so second conclusion doesn’t follow)

5. Statements: – [email protected], B%C, C*D, D%E
Conclusions: – a) A&E b) B*D
1) Only conclusion 1 follows
2) Only conclusion 2 follows
3) Either 1 or 2 follow
4) Both follow
5) Neither conclusion 1 nor 2 follow
Answer – 2) Only conclusion 2 follows
Explanation :
A<B=C>=D=E (no relation A and E and B>=D directly follows)

6. What should come in place of question mark in the expression P>Q ? R < T < S so as to make the expressions P>R and S>Q always true?
a) =
b) >
c) <
d) >=
e) None of these
Explanation :
P>Q = R< T < S (Both expression true)

7. What should come in place of question mark in the expression A = B >C ? D< E = F so as to make the expression F>C always true?
a) >
b) =
c) >=
d) <=
e) both b and d
Answer – e) both b and d
Explanation :
A = B >C = D< E =F and A = B >C <= D< E =F (F>C true in both cases)

8. Statements: P = S, P < Q, R <= Q, R<= T
Conclusions :  a) Q > S b) Q  =  T
a) Only one follow
b) Only two follow
c) Neither follows
d) Both follow
e) Either follow
Answer – a) Only one follow
Explanation :
T>=R<=Q>P=S (clearly Q>S and no relation between Q and T)

9. Statements: – A > N, K >= N, K > M, R > M
Conclusions: – a) M = N b) R >= A
a) Only one follow
b) Only two follow
c) Neither follows
d) Both follow
e) Either follow
e) None of these
Explanation :
A>N<=K>M<R (no relation between M and N and R and A)

10. What should come in place of question mark to make B> D always true?
A = B > C ? D <E
a) >
b) <
c) >=
d) < =
e) both a and c
Answer – e) both a and c
Explanation :
A = B >C >D <E and A = B>C>=D<E in both cases B will be greater than D
