Solutions:
1). From both the expressions: Since D = E, F≤ C <D
Hence, F< D

2). Consider option1:
Relationship between R and S cannot be determined
Consider option2:
Relationship between R and S cannot be determined
Consider option 3:
Since R ≥ Q and Q > S, expression R > S is definitely true

3). Consider expression, P<L = O ≤ N ≥ M
Then it can concluded that both the expressions ‘ N  > P’ and “ L ≤ N’ are definitely true.

4). Consider option1: Relationship between A and D cannot be determined
Consider option2: Relationship between A and D cannot be determined
Consider option3: ‘A ≤ D’ is definitely false
Consider option4: ‘A ≤ D’ is definitely true

5). Option 1 is true
Option 2 is true
Option 3 is false
Option 4 is true

Directions (Q. 6-9):

10). Shyam is pointing to himself
Shyam’s gender is not given. So, if we assume Shyam as male, then his father’s only son will be himself
If we assume Shyam as female, then his father’s only son will be her brother. But according to the first statement, his mother have only child. Hence ,this assumption is invalid.
