Solutions:
1. C) A ≥ B > C = D ≤ E
I. A > C (True); II. D ≤ F (False)
Observing the options definitely option (C) is not true
2. B) Check all options and find in which both or at least one of C < E and B > E is True.
(Because ‘or’ is given between C $ E or B % E.
A > B < C < D = E > F ≤ in C < E is true. In all other option, both are false.
3. D) A ≥ B ≥ C < D = E ≤ F
I. A > D (False); II. C < F (True); III. B > D (False); IV. D > F (False)
Only (i), (ii) and (iv) not true. 
4. B) A < D ≤ B < C = E > F
I. A < C (True); II. E > B (True)
In option (B) both are true
