11).What should come in place of question mark in the expression
P>Q ? R< T< S so as to make the expressions P>R and S>Q always true?
a)  =
b)  >
c)  <
d)  >=
e)  None of these
12).What should come in place of question mark in the expression A = B>C ? D< E = F so as to make the expression F>C always true?
a)  >
b)  =
c)  >=
d)  <=
e)  both b and d
13).What should come in place of question mark to make B> D always true?
A = B> C ? D
a)  >
b)  <
c)  >=
d)  < =
e)  both a and c
14).In which of these expressions ‘S> V’ be definitely false?
a)  S>P≥Q=G≥R>V
b)  PT
c)  V≤A≤L=R
d)  S>C>=F≤H; V
e)  S>T=O≥P; V
15).Which of the following symbols should be placed in the blank spaces respectively(in the same order from left to right) in order to complete the given expression in such a manner that both ‘D>S’ as well as ‘E≤B’ definitely holds true? B _ A _ S _ E _ D
a)  >, ≥,<, =
b)  >,>, ≥,<
c)  ≥, ≥, ≥,≤
d)  ≥, =, ≥,<
e)  Other than those given as options
1)a   2)a   3)c   4)e   5)b   6)c   7)a   8)e   9)d   10)d   11)a   12)e   13)e   14)b   15)d

Solutions:
1. A)A>=B>E=D (A>E directly follow while A>D, not follow for all values of A,D)
2. A)A = B> C>=D<=E (A>C directly follows while B>=D doesn’t follow as B is always greater than D)
3. C)A = B=D>E (C>D and C=D)
4. E)A>B
(E>A doesn’t follow for all values of E,A and B>=E, both doesn’t follow for all values of E, B )
5. B)A>=B<=C>D>=E (A>D doesn’t follow for all value of A and D and E
6. C)Q ≥ G = A ≤ M, this gives both Q and M less than equal to F
So either Q will be> M or Q will be ≤ M
7. A)Q ≥ P> F, so Q> F
A> Q ≥ P> F< C, so relation cant be determined between A and C
8. E)P> V ≥ M> G, so P> G
A ≤ V< Q, so P< Q
9. D)A ≤ N> P, so no relationship between A and P
L> P< N, both L and N less than P so no relationship between L and N
10. D)O< L> R ≤ T, so relation cant be determined between O and T
K ≥ R< L, so relation can’t be determined between K and L
11. A)P>Q = R< T< S (Both expression true)
12. E)A = B>C = D< E =F and A = B>C<= D< E =F (F>C true in both cases)
13. E)A = B>C>DC>=D
14. B)PT

15. D)≥, =, ≥,<
