Directions (Q. 6-10):
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]
