Directions: The symbols @, ©, \$, % and * are used with different meanings as follows:

'P © Q' means ‘P is either greater than or equal to Q’

'P \$ Q' means ‘P is either smaller than or equal to Q’

'P % Q' means ‘P is neither greater then nor smaller than Q’

'P * Q' means ‘P is greater than Q’

'P @ Q' means ‘P is smaller than Q’

In each of the following questions assuming the given statements to be true, find out which of the following of the two conclusions I and II given below them is/are definitely true. Given answer
Important for :
1

Conclusions :      I. K * G          II. R @ F
» Explain it
B
As per the information given,
1. F * G means F > G
2. G © R means G ≥ R
3. R © K means R ≥ K

So, the final equation will be,

F  >  G  ≥  R  ≥  K

Now,         the Conclusion I. K * G means K > G
the Conclusion II. R @ F means R < F

Let's check the Conclusions now,

Conclusion I :

Conclusion II :

Hence, only Conclusion II is true.
2
Statements :       E © K, K @ M, M * R

Conclusions :      I. R @ K          II.  M @ E
» Explain it
D
As per the information given,
1. E © K means E ≥ K
2. K @ M means K < M
3. M * R means M > R

So, the final equation will be,

E    K  <  M  >  R

Now,         the Conclusion I. R @ K means R < K
the Conclusion II. M @ E means M < E

Let's check the Conclusions now,

Conclusion I :

Conclusion II :

Hence, neither Conclusion I nor II is true.
3
Statements :       W \$ N, N % B, B * F

Conclusions :      I. B % W          II. * W
» Explain it
C
As per the information given,
1. W \$ N means W ≤ N
2. N % B means N = B
3. B * F means B > F

So, the final equation will be,

W  ≤  N  =  B  >  F

Now,         the Conclusion I. B % W means B = W
the Conclusion II. B * W means B > W

Let's check the Conclusions now,

Conclusion I :

Conclusion II :

Hence, either Conclusion I or II is true.
4
Statements :       M % T, T * J, J © D

Conclusions :      I. D @ T          II. J @ M
» Explain it
E
As per the information given,
1. M % T means M = T
2. T * J means T > J
3. J © D means J ≥ D

So, the final equation will be,

M  =  T  >  J  ≥  D

Now,         the Conclusion I. D @ T means D < T
the Conclusion II. J @ M means J < M

Let's check the Conclusions now,

Conclusion I :

Conclusion II :

Hence, both Conclusions I and II are true.
5
Statements :       B @ H, H \$ N, N % F

Conclusions :      I. F © H          II.  * B
» Explain it
E
As per the information given,
1. B @ H means B < H
2. H \$ N means H ≤ N
3. N % F means N = F

So, the final equation will be,

B  <  H  ≤  N  =  F

Now,         the Conclusion I. F © H means F ≥ H
the Conclusion II. N * B means N > B

Let's check the Conclusions now,

Conclusion I :

Conclusion II :

Hence, both Conclusions I and II are true.
