(i)M < D (ii) D > K (iii) K ≤ R (iv) R > F

These relationships can’t be of any help. none of the quantities can be compared on their basis.

11.(3)

P % Q means P is not smaller than Q ----------------- [ P≥ Q ]

P © Q means P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q --- [ P > Q]

P x Q means P is neither greater than nor equal to Q --------- [ P < Q ]

P ∂ Q means P is not greater than Q ---------- [ P ≤ Q ]

P @ Q means P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q------- [ P=Q ]

12. (D) Statement – R ∂ K ; K x M ; M @ J

R ≤ K < M = J

Conclusions -:

I. J © K ------- [ J > K ]

II. M © R ---- [ M > R ]

III. R X J ------ [ R < J ]

Clearly All the conclusions are true

13 -(C) Statements – Z @ M ; M © K ; K X F

Z = M > K < F

Conclusions - :

I. F © Z ---------- [ F > Z ] cannot be said.

II. K X Z --------- [ K < Z ] Surely it is

III. F © M -------- [ F > M ] cannot be said

So Only II is correct.

14- (E)Statements – V % H ; H @ F ; F ∂ E

V ≥ H = F ≤ E

Conclusions :-

I. F @ V ---- [ F=V ] not sure may nor may not be

II. F X V --------- [ F < V ] Not sure may or may not be

III. E % H ------- [ E ≥ H ] Surely.

But here F= H & H ≤ V so indirectly F≤V so either F= V or F < V but not both at a time, but atleast one has to hold. So either I or II should be there and III is always right. So answer is either I or II & III are correct.

15 -(A) Statements – W © T ; T ∂ N ; N % D

Means – W > T

N ≥ T

N ≥ D

Conclusions :-

I. D X T ----- [ D < T ] cannot be said. No idea of relation between them

II. W © N -- [ W > N ] cannot be said

III. D @ T -- [ D = T ] cannot be said.

So here None is true.

16-19

A $ B means A not a lessthan B Therefore, A = B

A # B means A not a greater than B Therefore, A = B

A @ B means A not a lessthan B and A ? B Therefore, A = B

A © B means A not a lessthan B and A !> B Therefore, A = B

A % B means A not a greater than B and A ? B Therefore, A < B

16.(B) H % J = H < J

J © N = J = N

N @ R = N > R

Therefore, H < J = N > R

Conclusions:

I. R % J = R < J ( True )

II. H @ J =H > J ( Not true)

III. N @ J =N > H (True)

17.(E)

M % J = M > J

J $ T = J = T

T © N =T = N

Therefore, M > J = T = N

Conclusions:

I. N # J = N = J ( true )

II. T % M = T < M ( true)

III. M @ N =M > N ( true)

18.(C)

D © K -> D = K

K # F -> K = F

F @ P -> F > P

Therefore, D = K = F > P

Conclusions:

I. P @ D -> P > D ( Not true )

II. K # P -> K = P ( Not true )

III.F $ D -> F = D ( True )

19. (D)

K # N -> K = N

N $ T -> N = T

T % J -> T > J

Therefore, K = N = T > J

Conclusions:

I. J @ N -> J > N ( Not true )

II. K @ T -> K > T ( Not true )

III.T @ K -> T > K ( Not true )
