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:-
