Questions (1-2):
1. Answer: a)
2. Answer: b)
 
Questions (3-4):
 
+ → <, – →>, × → =, ÷ → > , % → >, % →<
3. P<

T>V

Now, we can’t compare R and V, or P and V,
Thus, neither A nor B follows.
Again, P< R. Hence, conclusion C follows.
Answer: d)
 
4. M = N> P < Q< R
Now, we can’t compare M and Q.
Thus, (A) and (C) do not follow.
Again, P<

R.

Hence (B) does not follow. So, M>P. Hence conclusion (D) follows.
Answer: d)
