Only conclusion II is true.

Your Answer
C

Neither conclusion I nor II is true.

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 .

So, conclusion (ii) does not follow.
