Direction (Q. 1-5): Twelve wards N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X and Y of a hospital  are in two parallel buildings. Building 1 is facing west and building – 2 is facing east. Wards P, Q, R, S, T and U are in building 1 and wards N, O, V, W, X, and Y are in building 2. Each wards of building 1 is exactly opposite the other ward in building 2.
i.        Ward V, which is at one of the ends of the building, is second to the left of ward Y.
ii.        There are two wards between ward N and O.
iii.        There is only one ward between ward S and T.
iv.        Ward U is third to the right of Q.
v.        Ward U is not opposite either V and Y.
vi.        Ward S and T are not opposite V. ward P is adjacent to ward S.

SOLUTIONS:
Directions (Q. 1-5):

6). Statement : K > I ≥ T ≥ E; O < R < K
On combining both the statements, we get
O < R < K > I ≥ T ≥ E
Conclusions : I. R < E    (false)
II. O < T               (false)
Thus, neither conclusion I nor II follows

7). Statement : C < L < O = U = D ≥ S > Y
Conclusions : I. O > Y     (true)
II. C < D  (true)
Thus, both conclusion I and II follow

8). Statement : K ≥ L > M ≥ N
Conclusions : I. N ≤ K    (false)
II. N < K       (true)
Thus, only conclusion II follows

9). Statement : Z ≥ Y = W ≤ X
Conclusions : I. W < Z    (may be true)
II. W = Z  (may be true)
Thus, either conclusion I or II follows

10). Statement : B > A > S < I > C > L > Y
Conclusions : I. B > L     (false)
II. A > Y (false)
Thus, neither conclusion I nor II follows
