Directions (Q. 1-5) In these questions, relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. These statements are followed by two conclusions.

Give answer:
(a) If only conclusion I follows
(b) If only conclusion II follows
(c) If either conclusion I or II follows
(d) If neither conclusion I nor II follows
(e) If both conclusions I and II follow

1. Statements: L > M, M > N, N > P
Conclusions: I. L > P II. M > P

2. Statements: A > B, B = H, H > G
Conclusions: I. A > G II. A > H

3. Statements: H < J, F < H, I ≤ J = K
Conclusions: I. H > I II. I ≥ F

4. Statements: A < B < C ≤ D = E
Conclusions: I. B ≤ E II. B < E

5. Statements: P > M > Q, Q > Z > N
Conclusions: I. M ≥ Z II. N < P

Answers
1. Option E
L > M …. (i)
M > N …. (ii)
N > P …. (iii)
On combining all the three statements, we get
L > M > N > P
Conclusions: I. L > P (True)
II. M > P (True)

2. Option E
A > B …. (i)
B = H …. (ii)
H > G …. (iii)
On combining the statements (i), (ii) and (iii), we get
A > B = H > G
Conclusions: I. A > G (True)
II. A > H (True)

3. Option D
H < J …. (i)
F < H …. (ii)
I ≤ J = K …. (iii)
On combining the statements (i), (ii) and (iii), we get
F < H < J = K ≥ I
Conclusions: I. H > I (False)
II. I ≥ F (False)

4. Option E
A < B < C ≤ D = E
Conclusions: I. B ≤ E (False)
II. B < E (True)

5. Option B
P > M > Q …. (i)
Q > Z > N …. (ii)
On combining the statements (i) and (ii) we get
P > M > Q > Z > N
Conclusions: I. M ≥ Z (False)
II. N < P (True)
