Solutions:

1.Statements: P = Q    โฆ..(i)
M< N    โฆโฆ.(ii)
P< N    โฆโฆ(iii)
J< M     โฆโฆ(iv)
Conclusions: I. P> M II. N> J
Combining all the expressions
Q = P< N> M> J
Check for I. Q = P< N> M> J
Canโt compare P and M
Thus, I does not follow.
Check for II. Q = P< N> M>J
N> J
Hence, conclusion II follows.

2.Statements: C> Q   โฆ..(i)
L = T   โฆ..(ii)
D< C  โฆ..(iii)
L< Q    โฆ.(iv)
Conclusions: I. Q> L II. D> L
Combining all the exressions
D< C> Q> L = T
Check for I. D C> Q> L = T
Q> L does not hold true
Check for II. D< C> Q>L = T
Canโt compare D and L
Thus II doesnโt follow

3.Statements: U< V     โฆ..(i)
S> C   โฆโฆ(ii)
U> F   โฆโฆ(iii)
F> C    โฆ.(iv)
Conclusions: I. V> C II. U> S
Combining all the expressions
V> U> F> C< S
Check for I. V> U> F> C<S
V> C
Thus, conclusion I is true.
Check for II. V> U> F> C<S
Canโt compare U and S
Thus, II does not follow.

4.Statements: T> R  โฆ.(i)
I< E   โฆ..(ii)
T> E   โฆ.(iii)
I = L     โฆ.(iv)
Conclusions: I. E =  R II. R> L
Combining all the expressions,
L = I< E< T> R
Check for conclusions I.
L = I< E< T> P
Canโt compare E and R.
Thus, I does not follow.
Check for conclusion II.
L = I< E< T> R
Canโt compare L and R.
Thus II does not hold true.

5.Statements: L< M    โฆ.(i)
N> J   โฆโฆ(ii)
X> M    โฆ..(iii)
L = N     โฆ.(iv)
Conclusions: I. N< M    II. N> M
Combining all the expressions
X> M> L = N> J
Check for I. X> M> L = N> J
N< M. thus conclusion I does not  follow.
Check for II. I. X> M> L = N> J
M> N
Then conclusion II does not follow.

6.Q> R = K
So, Q> K

7.F> R and R> G
So, F> G and also given F> V.
Canโt say about V and G.

8.Q> L< M = R< K
Q> L< M< K
Q> L< K      canโt say about Q and K
Q> L< M      canโt say about Q and M
