Check below the detailed explanation for the above Reasoning Questions:

1).Given statement:

Thus, W> D is true. But conclusion II (R>N) is not true.

2. Given statements:
P< Q =T> Nโฆโฆ(i)
V< S< Pโฆโฆ..(ii)
Combining both the statements, we get
V< S< P< Q = T> N
Thus, N> S is not true. But S<T is true.

3.Given statements:
L= M> S> Gโฆโฆ.(i)
H< K = Gโฆโฆโฆ.(ii)
Combining both the statements, we get
L=M>S>G=K>H
Thus,L>K is true,Again,S>H is also true.

4.Given statements:

R<Q means R< Q or R= Q
Hence either conclusion I or II is true.

5.Given statements:
C>D
D
Combining both the statements, we get
P=J>D
Again,C>D
Thus, C> P is not true
Again, J
