In the following questions, the symbols $,@,#,^ and * are used with the following meaning as illustrated below. ‘P$ Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than Q’.
‘P @ Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to ‘Q

Solutions (1 to 5)

Substituting the symbols based on the directions we get
H > T , T < F , F = E , E ≤ V
= H > T < F = E ≤ V
Now the options are
V ≥ F , E > T , H > V , T < V
Following the rules for coded inequalities in the concept section we find that I, II, IV are correct
So option B is right

From the question D < R ≤ K > F ≥ J
These conclusions given are J < R , J < K , R < F , K > D
As per the rules given in the coded inequalities of the banking concept , II: J < K , IV: K > D are correct.
But there is no option as such .
Hence d : None of these is the right choice.

From the question N = B ≥ W < H ≤ M
The conclusions given are M > W , H > N , W = N , W < N
As per the rules given in the coded inequalities section of Banking Concepts, options I : M > W is correct and III : W = N , IV : W < N are partially correct.
So Option E : Only either  III or IV and I are true is correct

From the statements given, R ≤ D ≥ J < M > K
The conclusions given are K < J ,D > M , R < M , D > K
We know that both J and K are lesser than M, but we don’t know whether J > K or not. Hence, the first conclusion is wrong.
Similarly, we know that both M and D are greater than, but we don’t know which of the two M and D is greater.
We know that D is greater than R, but as we don’t know whether D is greater or lesser than M, we don’t know whether M is greater than R or not.
In the same way, the relationship between M and K is known, but as the relationship between M and D is not known, we can’t comment about the relationship between D and K
Hence, all the conclusions are wrong.

From the question M ≥ K > N ≤ R < W
The conclusions given are W > K , M ≥ R , K < W , M > N
We know that both W and K are greater than N, but the relationship between the two of them is not known. Hence, the first conclusion is wrong.
Similarly, M and R are greater than N, but the relationship between the two of them is not known.
Similarly, K and W are greater than N, but the relationship between the two of them is not known.
M is greater than or equal to K which is in turn greater than N, hence M > N and the fourth conclusion is correct.
So, of the four options, none of them is correct.

Solution (6 to 7)

Substituting the symbols based on the directions we get
H > T , T < F , F = E , E ≤ V
= H > T < F = E ≤ V
Now the options are
V ≥ F , E > T , H > V , T < V
Following the rules for coded inequalities in the concept section we find that I, II, IV are correct
So option B is right

From the question D < R ≤ K > F ≥ J
Thes conclusions given are J < R , J < K , R < F , K > D
As per the rules given in the coded inequalities of the banking concept , II: J < K , IV: K > D are correct.
But there is no option as such .
Hence d : None of these is the right choice.

From the question N = B ≥ W < H ≤ M
The conclusions given are M > W , H > N , W = N , W < N
As per the rules given in the coded inequalities section of Banking Concepts, options I : M > W is correct and III : W = N , IV : W < N are partially correct.
So Option E : Only either  III or IV and I are true is correct

From the statements given, R ≤ D ≥ J < M > K
The conclusions given are K < J ,D > M , R < M , D > K
We know that both J and K are lesser than M, but we don’t know whether J > K or not. Hence, the first conclusion is wrong.
Similarly, we know that both M and D are greater than, but we don’t know which of the two M and D is greater.
We know that D is greater than R, but as we don’t know whether D is greater or lesser than M, we don’t know whether M is greater than R or not.
In the same way, the relationship between M and K is known, but as the relationship between M and D is not known, we can’t comment about the relationship between D and K
Hence, all the conclusions are wrong.

From the question M ≥ K > N ≤ R < W
The conclusions given are W > K , M ≥ R , K < W , M > N
We know that both W and K are greater than N, but the relationship between the two of them is not known. Hence, the first conclusion is wrong.
Similarly, M and R are greater than N, but the relationship between the two of them is not known.
Similarly, K and W are greater than N, but the relationship between the two of them is not known.
M is greater than or equal to K which is in turn greater than N, hence M > N and the fourth conclusion is correct.
So, of the four options, none of them is correct.
