Directions (Q.1-4): In each question below are given three statements followed by four conclusions numbered I, II,. You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance with commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements, disregarding commonly known facts.

a)    If only conclusion I follow
b)    If only conclusion II follow
c)    If either conclusion I or II follow
d)    If neither conclusion I nor II follow
e)    If both conclusion I and II follow
1). Statement: Some boards are clocks.

a)    Only conclusion I is true.
b)    Only conclusion II is true.
c)    Either conclusion I or II is true
d)    Both Conclusion I and II is true
e)    Neither Conclusion I and  II is true.

5). Statement: L = I ≥ N < E; N ≥ S
Conclusion: I. S < E
II. E > L

6). Statement: V < E > B = H ≥ N; B ≤ T
Conclusion: I. T > V
II. N ≤T

7). Statement: L = I ≥ N < E; N ≥ S
Conclusion: I. S = L
II. L > S

8). Statement: B > E ≥ A < L; T ≥ A > S
Conclusion: I. B > S
II. L > S

Directions (Q. 9-10): Study the following information and answer the questions given below.
‘A + B’ means ‘A’ is father of ‘B’
‘A ÷ B’ means ‘B’ is brother of ‘A’
‘A × B’ means ‘A’ is husband of ‘B’
‘A - B’ means ‘A’ is sister of ‘B’
9). In the expression A + B × C – D ÷ E, how is D related to B?

b)    T × Q + Z – R
c)    P + Q – R × Z
d)    None of these
e)    Cannot be determined

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

Solution:
5). Given Statements:
L = I ≥ N < E;
N ≥ S
Combining above both we get
S ≤N , E
Thus S < E is true.
Hence I is true.
Again from I we can’t compare L and E
hence II (E > L) is not true
6). Given Statements:
V < E > B = H ≥ N;
B ≤ T
Combining above both we get
V < E > B ≤ T
thus, we can’t compare V and T.
hence I (T > V) is not true.
Again, from (I) and (ii), we get
T ≥ B = H ≥ N
thus, T ≥ N or N ≤ T is true
hence II is true
7). Given Statements
L = I ≥ N < E;
N ≥ S
Combining above both we get
L = I ≥ N ≥ S
thus, L ≥ S or S ≤ L is true
it means L > S may be true or L = S may be true.
Hence conclusion I and II make a complementary pair.
so, either I or II is true
8). Given statements:
B > E ≥ A < L; T ≥ A > S
Combining above we get
B > E ≥ A < L
thus B > S is true
hence I is true
Again S < A < L
So, S < L or L > S is true
hence both I and II is true
9). hence D may be either male or female so, we cannot be determined.
10).
