# Reasoning: Inequalities Questions for IBPS PO Prelims – Set 15

Direction (1-6): Relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. Find if the conclusions also follow or not.

1. Statements: H ≥ O = U ≥ B < L = P; D < N = B ≥ S > K
Conclusions:
I. K < L
II. H ≥ K
A) only I follows
B) only II follows
C) either I or II follows
D) neither I nor II follow
E) both I and II follow
Option A
2. Statements: B < N = T ≥ G > H = F;  G > L = D > V; L > W = A
Conclusions:
I. A < H
II. V < B
A) only I follows
B) only II follows
C) either I or II follows
D) neither I nor II follow
E) both I and II follow
Option D
3. Statements: F ≥ V = T ≥ G < L ≤ D = S; E = Q < T ≤ N; Q > P = W
Conclusions:
I. D > N
II. F > W
A) only I follows
B) only II follows
C) either I or II follows
D) neither I nor II follow
E) both I and II follow
Option B
4. Statements: N > D ≥ F > J; E < L ≤ G < S < P < F; G > W
Conclusions:
I. W < J
II. J ≤ W
A) only I follows
B) only II follows
C) either I or II follows
D) neither I nor II follow
E) both I and II follow
Option C
Solution:
W < G < S < P < F > J. So no relation between W and J, so
1) either W > J or W ≤ J follows  OR
2) either W < J or ≥ J follows   —— which is given case
5. Statements: H > L = G ≥ S < L ≤ W; S > W > P = R ≤ V; P < X = O
Conclusions:
I. W > R
II. O > R
A) only I follows
B) only II follows
C) either I or II follows
D) neither I nor II follow
E) both I and II follow
Option E
6. Statements: V < E = D = W ≥ L; F ≥ S = D < K; L ≥ R = H ≥ B
Conclusions:
I. B < S
II. B = S
A) only I follows
B) only II follows
C) either I or II follows
D) neither I nor II follow
E) both I and II follow
Option C
Solution:
B ≤ L ≤ W = D = S, so B ≤ S

1. Which of the following would replace % and # in the following expression so that A ≤ B holds true?
Q < D % S ≥ A = W; B ≥ P # D = Z > X
A) >, ≤
B) ≥, >
C) ≥, ≥
D) >, =
E) None of these
Option C
Solution:
A ≤ S ≤ D ≤ P ≤ B
2. In which of the following expressions does the expression ‘B ≤ H’ and ‘A > G’ definitely hold true?
A) A = B < F ≥ H = K > G > D
B) D > A = G ≥ B = F ≤ G < H
C) A < O > G < H = H ≥ S ≥ B
D) G = U ≤ B = E ≤ H = O < A
E) None of these
Option D

3. In which of these expression ‘L > P’ is definitely false?
A) W < P ≥ S ≥ Q < N> A ≥ L > V
B) N > L > M = D ≥ B = A > P = R
C) M ≤ A > L > W ≥ V ≤ B = P < S
D) S > L = C ≥ H = H ≥ P ≤ Q = T
E) B > L ≤ A = M < Q ≤ T = P < G
Option E
Solution:
In A, B, C – relation between L and P cannot be determined, so cannot be told that whether ‘A ≤ P’ is definitely false or not.
In D) – L ≥ P, so cannot be said that whether L > P or L = P, so cannot be said that ‘L > P’ is definitely false
In E) – L < P, so ‘L > P’ is definitely false
4. In which of these expression ‘A ≤ P’ is definitely false?
A) W < P ≥ S ≥ Q < N> A ≥ R > V
B) N > A > M = D ≥ B = L > P = R
C) M ≤ A > L > W ≥ V ≤ B = P < S
D) S > A > = C ≤ H = P ≤ Q = T = K
E) B > L ≤ A > M ≥ Q < T > P < G
Option B
Solution:
In B) – A > P so ‘A ≤ P’ is definitely false. In other option, relation between A and P cannot be determined, so cannot be told that whether ‘A ≤ P’ is definitely false or not.

Q9 ka ans E hoga na ? ans me B kaise diya hua h

1. Shubhra

yes E as in explanation

1. Best buddy

Mam plz explain 4th me option C kyo h D kyo nhi.according to me option D hona chahiye.

1. Shubhra

when there is no relation between two elements say T and H
then T > H or T <=H
and T =H
Take C > A 3 < 9.
so now we see that 6 n 9 have some relation. either 6 9
so when we are given same elements like P > Q and P ≤ Q
then either or
