Question



In each question, three statements showing relationships have been given, which are followed by two conclusions I and II. Assuming that the given statements are true, find out which conclusion(s) is/are definitely true. 
Statements : N ? S, S @ P, P pounds M
Conclusions
I. S @ M
II. P c N



Your Answer
A
if only conclusion I is true
Your Answer
B
if only conclusion II is true
Your Answer
C
if either I or II is true
Correct Answer
D
is neither I nor II is true
Your Answer
E
if both I and II are true

Solution

The correct option is D is neither I nor II is true
In these questions the negative meaning of these symbols is given to establish the relation between A and B, which can be easily converted to its simple and positive meaning. Expressing them mathematically, we get, @ > (greater than), c (equal to), pounds  (means either greater than or smaller than, but no definite conclusion), ? < (smaller than), and $
N < S  . . .(i), S > P . . . (ii), P # M (iii)
From (ii) and (iii), no definite relationship between S and M can be established. Hence I is not true. From (i) and (ii), we get, N < S > P no conclusion. Hence,II is not true.
