In the following questions, the symbols *, §, %, @ and © used with the following meaning as illustrated below
‘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 great er than nor equal to Q’.
‘P § Q’ means ‘P is not greater than 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 he true.
find which of the three conclusions I, II and Ill given below them is/are definitely

Question 234

# Statements :V % H, H @ F, F § EConclusions :I. F @ VII. F * VIII. E % H

Solution

statements and their meanings are :
V % H: V$$\geq$${H}
H @ F:H=F
F § E:{F}$$\leq$${E}

these can be simplified into one equation as :{V}$$\geq$${H}=F$$\leq$${E}

conclusion I. F @ V: F=V, possible as can be seen from the simplified equation
conclusion II. F * V:F<V, possible as can be seen from the simplified equation
conclusion III. E % H:{E}$$\geq$${H}, possible as can be seen from the simplified equation

since all are possible but not simultaneously therefore answer is option E
