II. L < Q is not true
III.P > T is not true

Solutions (11-15):

11.   (3) Three words can be formed – TEA, ATE, EAT

12.   (2) One     % P 5

13.   (3) reverse order: O B 9 T 11 D R E 7 # 5 P % 2 A \$ 3 N
Eighth to the left & seventh to the right of letter/symbol/number will be  8 + 7 = 15th to the right hand side is T

14.   (4): When we delete alternate letter/number/symbol starting from A, then new series will

A % 5 7 R 11 9 0
So, 3rd  to the left and 4th from the right end = 7th from right end is %

15.   (2) Total Numbers which are followed by a symbol are: three - 3 \$, 2 %, 5 #
Total vowels which are immediately preceded by a symbol are one - \$ A
