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?

**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

**Answers:**

**Solutions:**

**1. A)**A>=B>E

**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

**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>D

**14. B)**PT

**15. D)**≥, =, ≥,<
