Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1. Given: D>U=R<B<L<E
Thus, we canโt compare D and E. Hence neither conclusion I(E>D) nor II(D=E) is
True.

2. Given: M>E=T>I>O
Thus, we canโt compare T and N.Hence I (T>N) is not true. Again,M>I or IM) is not true.

3. Given: C<N<T=O

Thus, EC is true. Hence II (O<C) is not true.

4. Given: T>U>N=D<E<R
Thus,T>D is true. Hence I is true.
Again,N<R is true. Hence II is true.

5. Given: M>S>T>Gโฆโฆโฆโฆโฆ(i)
P>D<Tโฆโฆโฆโฆโฆโฆ…(ii)
Combining (i) and (ii), we get
M>S>T>D
Thus, M>D is true.
So, M=D may be true and M>D or D

6. Some marks are percentages (1)โconversionโsome percentages are marks(I) +All marks are scores(A) =I+A=Some percentages are scores. Hence conclusion II follows. But conclusion I does not follow from the first statement.

7. All chairs are links (A) + No link is a bridge (E) =A+E =No chain is a bridge (E)โConversion โNo bridge is a chain(E).Hence conclusion I follows. But conclusion  II does not follow.

8. All stems are leaves (A) + No leaf is a root (E)=A+E=E=No stem is a rootโconversionโNo root is a stem(E). Hence conclusion I follows. But conclusion II does not follow from the second statement.

9. All exams are tests (A) +All tests are projects (A) =A+A=A=All exams are projects. Hence conclusion I does not follow. Again, All tests are projects (A)โConversionโSome projects are tests (I).Hence conclusion II does not follow.
