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 ]

1. (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

2 -(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.

3- (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.

4 -(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.
