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:-
