Explanation:

1).
R<K    ..(i);
K>D    ..(ii);
D = V   ..(iii);
V ≤ M    ..(iv)
From (i) and (ii), R and D can’t be compared. Hence I and II do not follow.
From (iii) and (iv), D=V≤ M or D ≤ M. hence either III (D = M) or IV (M > D) follows.

2). F>N   ..(i);
N≥W   ..(ii);
W≤ Y   ..(iii)
Y<T   ..(iv)
From (i) and (ii), F>N≥W or F>W. Hence  I follows.
From (ii) and (iii), N and Y can’t be compared. Hence II and III do not follow
From (iii) and (iv), W≤Y<T or T>W. Hence IV follows.

3). B≥T  ..(i)
T<R   ..(ii)
R>F    ..(iii)
F = K   …(iv)
From (i) and (ii), B and R can’t be compared. Hence I does not follow.
From (iii) and (iv), R>F=K or R>K. hence III follows.

4). J=F    ..(i);
F≤N    ..(ii);
N>H   ..(iii);
H≥G   ..(iv);
From (iii) and (iv), N>H≥G or G<N
Hence I follows
From (i) and (ii), J=F≤N or N≥J
Hence II follows
From (i), III (F<J) is false.
From I and II, G and J can’t be compared. Hence IV does not follow.

5). D≤T  ..(i);
T=R    ..(ii);
R≥M   ..(iii);
M>K   ..(iv);
From (i) and (ii), D≤T=R or D≤R
Hence either I (R = D) or II (R>D) follows
From (ii) and (iii), T=R≥M or M≤T
Hence IV follows
From (iv) and IV, K<M≤T or K<T
Hence III follows

6). H>T    ..(i)
T<F     ..(ii)
F=E    ..(iii)
E≤V    ..(iv)
Comparing (ii), (iii) and (iv), we get
T<F=E≤V     ..(v)
Hence V≥F and I is true
Also, E>T and II is true
Again, T<V and IV is true.
From (i) and IV, H and V can’t be compared. Hence III is not true

7). D<R    ..(i)
R≤K     ..(ii)
K>F    ..(iii)
F≥J    ..(iv)
Combining these, we get D<R≤K>F≥J
Now, J and R can’t be compared. Hence I does not follow
J<K and II follows
R and F can’t be compared. Hence III does not follow
K>D and IV follows.

8). N=B    ..(i)
B≥W     ..(ii)
W<H    ..(iii)
H≤M    ..(iv)
Combining these, we get N=B≥W<H≤M.
H and N can’t be compared. Hence II does not follow
Again, W≤N. which means either III (W =N) or IV (W < N) is true.

9). R≤D    ..(i)
D≥J     ..(ii)
J<M    ..(iii)
M>K    ..(iv)
None of these given quantities can be compared.

10). M≥K    ..(i)
K>N     ..(ii)
N≤R    ..(iii)
R<W    ..(iv)
From (i) and (ii), M≥K>N or M>N    ..(v)
From (iii) and (iv), N≤R<W or N<W   ..(vi)
Now, from (ii) and (iv), W and K can’t be compared. Hence I is not true.
From (iii) and (v), M and R can’t be compared. Hence II is not true.
From (ii) and (vi), K and W can’t be compared. Hence III is not true.
IV is definitely true from (v)
