Question 11: Read the following information carefully and answer the question which follows:
‘$A \times B$’ means ‘$A$ is the father of $B$’.
‘$A+B$’ means ‘$A$ is the daughter of $B$’.
‘$A \div B$’ means ‘$A$ is the son of $B$’
‘$A-B$’ means ‘$A$ is the sister of $B$’
What will come in place of question mark to establish that $P$ is the son-in-law of $S$ in the following expression ?
$P \times Q+R-T?S$

a) $+$

b) $\times$

c) $-$

d) $\div$

e) Either $+$ or $\div$

Solution:

From the expression $P \times Q+R-T$ we can make deductions as:

P is father of Q. Q is daughter of R. Hence, P and R are husband and wife.
Also, R is sister of T. Hence, R must be daughter or son of S for P to be son in law of S.

Hence, the correct option is E

Question 12: Which of the following expression is definitely true if the given expression ‘R<P’ and ‘S>Q’ are definitely true?

a) P>Q=R$\leq$T<S

b) S>T$\geq$R>Q

c) Q>R$\leq$T>P$\geq$S

d) S>T $\geq$ R>Q>P

e) None of these

Solution:

P>Q=R$\leq$T<S
means P is greater than Q and hence, P is greater than R. R is less than or equal to T. T is less than S. Therefore, Q is less than T.

Hence, the correct option is A.

Question 13: Which of the following symbols should replace question mark in the given expression in order to make the expression ‘$A>D$’ and ‘$F \geq C$’ definitely true ?
$A>B \geq C ? D \leq E = F$

a) $>$

b) $<$

c) $\leq$

d) $=$

e) Either $=$ or $\geq$

Solution:

The expression, A>B$\geq$C=D $\leq$ E =F,

Means that A is greater than B which can be greater than or equal to C. Now, if C is equal to D, naturally A is greter than D.

Also, D is less than or equal to E. As E and F are equal, D is less than or equal to F. Hence, C is less than or equal to F.
