Your Answer D Both conclusions I and II are true. Your Answer E Either conclusion I or II is true. Solution ## The correct option is E Only conclusion I is true. From the given Statements: BδT means ‘B is greater than T’ so B > T _______ (1) T$H means ‘T is smaller than H’ so T < H ______ (2) [email protected] means ‘H is neither greater than nor smaller than M’ so H = M ________(3) Now the given conclusions: MδT means ‘M is greater than T’ so M > T _______(i) BδH means ‘B is greater than H’ so B > H ________(ii) From the statements (2) and (3) we get T < H = M, so conclusion (i) follows while from the statements (1) and (2) B and H can’t be compared .
