First of all, I welcome you all to the easiest section of reasoning part of your syllabus. However, this welcome note is dependent on your caliber to answer the following questions:- (If you answer correctly, you will be welcomed)

Q1. If A = 50, B = 60, then is A > B?

Q2. If A = (50, 60, 70 …..100), B = (10, 20, 30, …..50), then is A ≥ B?

Q3. If A = 50, B = 60, then is A < B?

Q4. If A = (50, 60, 70 ….100), B = (10, 20, 30, ….50), then is A ≤ B?

Q5. If A = B and A > C, then can B > C?

Then what? You have answered all the questions correctly! So, you are welcome.

Let us see one sample question.

Directions (Q 1 to 2): In the following questions, the symbols %, ?, \$, #, and ! are used with following meaning : - (Don’t be upset, I have knowingly put some complication in these questions)

A % B = A is greater than B.

A ? B = A is either greater than or equal to B.

A \$ B = A is smaller than B.

A # B = A is either smaller than or equal to B.

A ! B = A is equal to B.

Now, based on the above codes, assuming the statements as facts; analyse the following conclusions and give answer:-

(a) If only I is true.

(b) If only II is true.

(c) If either I or II is true.

(d) If neither I nor II is true.

(e) If both I and II are true.

Q1. Statements:- R % S, T \$ R, S \$ R, R ? N, P ? Q.

Conclusions:     I           S % T
II          N # S

Q2. Statements:- S \$ P, R ? N, P ? Q, T \$ R, R \$ S

Conclusion:       I           P % R
II          T # S

Now let us solve question 1 first:-
