Directions (9 – 10): In the following questions, the symbols &, #, @, © and \$ are used with following meanings as illustrated below.
‘P & Q’ means ‘P is not greater than Q’.
‘P # Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than Q’.
‘P @ Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q’.
‘P © Q’ means ‘P is neither greater than nor equal to Q’.
‘P \$ Q’ means ‘P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q’.
In each question four statements showing relationship have been given, which are followed by four conclusions I, II, III and IV. Assuming that the given statements are true, find out which conclusions (s) is/are definitely true.
9. Statements: G # E, E \$ Q, Q @ R, H © R
Conclusions:
I. G \$ Q
A) Only either I or II is true
B) Only III is true
C) Only IV is true
D) III and IV are true
E) Only either I or II and III and IV are true
10. Statements: U @ S, S & Q, Q © T, T \$ N
Conclusions:
I. U @ Q
II. N @ S
III. T @ S
IV. N @ U
A) I and IV are true
B) II and III are true
C) I and III are true
D) II and IV are true
E) None of the above
Solutions:
1. E) By solving statement I: Rahul takes lecture before Pooja.
Rahul ¬ Pooja
II. Veena is not the first to take lecture.
III. Pooja is not the last to take the lecture.
Therefore, from three given statement we can’t conclude that who is first to take lecture.
Hence, question cannot be answered even with the information in all three statements.
2. E)   3. C)   4. C)   5. A)
6. B) Therefore as we can see in above diagram only statement of option 2) represent given conclusion.
7. D) Therefore as we can see in above diagram only statement of option 4) represent given conclusion.
8. C) Therefore as we can see in above diagram only statement of option 3) represent given conclusion.
(9 – 10):
From the given conditions, we draw the following table:
 P is & # @ © \$ ≤ ≥ > < = Than Q
9. E) Given statements are: G # E, E \$ Q, Q @ R, H © R
On replacing symbols: G ≥ E, E = Q, Q > R, H < R
On combining: G ≥ E = Q > R > H
Conclusions:
I. G \$ Q G = Q (False as G Q)
II. Q © G Q < G (False as G ≥ Q)
III. H © E H < E (Clearly, True)
IV. R © G R < G (Clearly, True)
Thus only conclusion III & IV is true but conclusion I and II form a complementary pair.
Hence either I or II and III & IV is true.
10. B) Given statements are: U @ S, S & Q, Q © T, T \$ N
On replacing symbols: U > S, S ≤ Q, Q < T, T = N
On combining: U > S ≤ Q < T = N
Conclusions:
I. U @ Q U > Q (False as clear relation between U & Q cant be established)
II. N @ S N > S (Clearly, True)
III. T @ S T > S (Clearly, True)
IV. N @ U N > U (False as clear relation between N & U cant be established)
Thus only conclusion II and III are true.
