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.
