‘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’

‘P *Q’ means ‘P is not greater than Q’

(4) Only either III or IV is true
(5) Only either III or IV and I are true

2. Statements: 
R * D
D $ J
J # M
M @ K
Conclusions:

II. D @ M
III. R # M 
IV. D @ K
(1) None is true  
(2) Only I is true
(3) Only II is true  
(4) Only III is true 
(5) Only IV is true

3. Statements: 
H @ T
T # F
F € E
E * V
Conclusions: 
I. V $ F  
II. E @ T

(1) Only I, II and III are true
(2) Only I, II and IV are true
(3) Only II, III and IV are true
(4) Only I, III and IV are true
(5) All I, II, III and IV are true

4. Statements: 
D # R
R * K
K @ F
F $ J
Conclusions:

II. J # K
III. R # F  
IV. K @ D
(1) Only II and III are true
(2) Only III and IV are true
(3) Only I, III and IV are true
(4) All I, II, III and IV are true
(5) Only II and IV are true.

5. Statements: 
M $ K
K @ N
N * R
R # W
Conclusions: 
I. W @ K 
II. M $ R
III. K @ W 
IV. M @ N
(1) Only I and II are true
(2) Only I is true
(3) Only III and IV are true
(4) Only III is true
(5) Only IV is true

Answers
1. (5) N = B ≥  W < H ≤ M
I. M > W  (True)  II. H > N  (False)
III. W = N (False) IV. W < N (False)   
So : N ≥ W (Only either III or IV and I are true)

2. (1) R ≤ D ≥ J < M > K
I. K < J  (False) II. D > M   (False)
III. R < M  (False)    IV. D > K  (False)
So none is true.

3. (2) H > T < F = E ≤ V
I. V ≥ F  (True) II. E > T (True)
III. H > V (False) IV. T < V (True) 
So only I, II and IV are true.

4. (5) D < R ≤ k > F ≥ J
I. J < R  (False) II. J < K (True)
III. R < F (False) IV. K > D (True)
So only II and IV are true.

5. (5) M ≥ K > N ≤ R < W
I. W > K (False) II. M ≥ R (False)
III. K > W (False) IV. M > N (True)
So only IV is true.
