+ โย <, – โ>, ร โ =, รท โย >ย , %ย โย >, % โ<
3.ย P<

T>V

Now, we canโt compare R and V, or P and V,
Thus, neither A nor B follows.
Again, P< R. Hence, conclusion C follows.
ย
4.ย M = N> Pย <ย Q< R
Now, we canโ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.
ย
5.ย Lโs wifeโs husband brotherโs is K. So K is brother of L. M is sister of K. So K is brother of M.

7.ย Given expression:
Pย >ย Q> Rย >ย S< T ? U = V
We put eitherโ<โ orย <ย in place of question mark (?).
In either case S< U is definitely true.
Thus, either โ<โ orย <ย satisfies.
