In the following questions, the symbols @, ©. $, % and * are used with the following meaning as illustrated below

‘P ©Q’ means ‘P is not greater than Q..

‘P % Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than Q’.

‘P * Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q’.

‘P @ Q’ means P is neither greater than nor equal to Q’.

‘P $ Q’ means ‘P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q’.

Now in each of the following questions assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the two conclusions I and II given below them is/ are definitely true ?

a: if only Conclusion 1 is true.

b: if only Conclusion II is true.

c: if either Conclusion I or II is true.

d: if neither Conclusion I nor II is true.

e: if both Conclusions I and li are true.

Question 229

Statements : M * T, T @ K, K @ N

Conclusions :

I. N * T

II. N * M

Solution

the statements and their meanings are as follows:

M * T: M>T

T @ K:K>T

K @ N:N>K

hence the overall equation will be:M>T AND N>K>T.

conclusion 1 will imply: N>T, which is true by the above single equation.

conclusion 2 will imply:N>M, which cannot be held true as there is no direct relation between the two.

therefore the correct option is A, where only conclusion 1 is true.
