a)    None
b)    One
c)    Two
d)    Three
e)    More than three

2). Four of the following five are alike in a certain way on the basis of their positions in the above arrangement and so form a group. Which is the one that does not belong to the group?
a)    \$9F
b)    R6%
c)    8PU
d)    #B4
e)    3BJ

3). If all the consonants are removed from the above arrangement which element will be fifth to the left of seventh from the right?
a)    6
b)    \$
c)    %
d)    1
e)    None of these

4). If all the symbols are removed from the above arrangement which element will be third to the left of thirteenth from the left?
a)    L
b)    R
c)    6
d)    %
e)    None of these

5). Which element will be fifth to the right of ninth from the right end if all the numbers are removed from the above arrangement?
a)    K
b)    @
c)    P
d)    #
e)    None of these

Directions (Q. 6-10): In the following questions the symbol ×,   ∂,   %,   ©,   @, are used with the following illustrations.

P % Q means P is not smaller than Q
P © Q means P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q
P x Q means P is neither greater than nor equal to Q
P ∂ Q means P is not greater than Q
P @ Q means P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q

6). Statement – R ∂ K  ;  K x M ;  M @ J
Conclusions:
III.  R x  J

a)    Only  I & II follows
b)    Only II & III follows
c)    Only  I & III follows
d)    All I, II & III follows
e)    None of these

7).    Statements –    Z @ M ;   M © K ;   K x F
Conclusions:
II.   K  x Z

a)    None follows
b)    Only I follow
c)    Only II follows
d)    d) Only   III follows
e)    Only II & III follows

8). Statements –   V % H  ;   H @ F ;   F ∂ E
Conclusions:
I.     F @ V
II.   F  x V
III.  E  % H

a)    Only either I or II follows
b)    Only III follows
c)    Only  I & II follows
d)    All I, II & III follows
e)    Only either I or II and III

9).  Statements –   W © T   ;   T ∂ N   ;   N % D
Conclusions:
I.     D x T
III.  D  @ T

a)    None follows
b)    Only I follow
c)    Only II follows
d)    d) Only   III follows
e)    Only I & II follows

10). Statements –    Y @ G ;   G © K ;   K x R
Conclusions   :
II.   K x Y

a)    None follows
b)    Only I follow
c)    Only II follows
d)    d) Only   III follows
e)    Only II & III

1). c) 2). e) 3). d) 4). b) 5). a) 6. d) 7. c)  8. e)  9. a)  10. c)

Explanation:
1). 1 6 R  and  J 3 B

2). \$9F this symbols and numbers are arranged in preceded by and followed by manner
So “3BJ” is not arranged in the above manner

3). New arrangement
5 E « 7 9 \$ 1 6 % I A 3 # 4 @ 8 U 2
Fifth to the left of seventh from the right = 5 + 7 = 12th from right = 1

4).
5 D G E 7 9 F 1 6 R L I A J 3 B 4 K P 8 U M 2
Third to the left of thirteenth from the left  = 13 – 3 = 10th from the left = R

5).
D G E « \$ F R % L I A J B # @ K P U M
Fifth to the right of ninth from the right end = 9 – 5 = 4th from right end = K

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 ]

6).  R ≤ K < M = J
J > K
M> R
R < J
All follows

7).   Z = M  > K  < F
F > Z not follows
K< Z  follows
F> M not follows

8).  V ≥ H = F ≤ E
F=V
F< V
E ≥ H
Either I and II and III follows

9). W > T , N ≥ T , N ≥ D
D < T
W> N
D = T
None follows

10).  Y = G  > K  < R
R > Y not follows
K< Y   follows
R> G  not follows
