Reasoning: Inequalities Questions for IBPS PO Prelims – Set 16

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

  1. Statements: A > L ≥ H > M = D < G ≤ F;  U ≤ K = P > M;  N= K < S
    Conclusions:  
    I. A > S
    II. A = 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
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:

    A > M < K < S
    So relationship cannot be determined between A and S. For either or condition, all three <, >, = sign should be present in conclusion
  2. Statements: B < G ≤ V = F > H;  K = L > F ≤ N = P;  D > N = S
    Conclusions:
    I. H < S
    II. B < P
    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
    View Answer
    Option E 
  3. Statements: V < L = D < K ≥ H > S;  P ≤ K = D > E;   K = F ≤ Z
    Conclusions:
    I. Z > L
    II. E < V
    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
    View Answer
    Option B
    Solution:
    Z ≥ K = D = L, So Z ≥ L 
  4. Statements: K = L < D ≤ G = P; U > E = D ≥ X ≤ B; P > O ≥ V < S
    Conclusions:
    I. V < X
    II. P ≥ X
    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
    View Answer
    Option B
  5. Statements: K = L < D ≤ G = P; U > E = D ≥ X ≤ B; P > O ≥ V < S
    Conclusions:
    I. U > K
    II. P > 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
    View Answer
    Option A 
  6. Statements: B < G ≤ V = F > H;  K = L > F ≤ N = P;  D > N = S
    Conclusions:
    I. L > G
    II. D > 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
    View Answer
    Option A

 

  1. Which of the following would replace & and # in the following expression so that ‘A > N’ holds true?
    A > L ≥ H & M = D < G ≤ F;  U ≤ K = M > P;  N # K < S
    A) =, =
    B) ≥, > 
    C) ≥, ≥
    D) <, =
    E) None of these
    View Answer
    Option A
    Solution:
    A > L ≥ H = M = K = N, So A > N
  2. In which of the following expressions does the expression ‘G < S’ definitely hold true?
    A) A = S < F ≥ H = K > G > D
    B) D > A = G ≥ B = F ≤ S < H
    C) A < O > G < H = H < S ≥ B
    D) G = U ≤ B = S ≤ H = O < A
    E) None of these
    View Answer
    Option C
     
  3. In which of these expression ‘L ≥ R’ is definitely false?
    A) W < R ≥ S ≥ Q < N> A ≥ L > V
    B) N > L > M = D ≥ B = A > P = R
    C) M ≤ A > L > W ≥ V ≤ B = P < R
    D) S > L = C ≥ H = V ≥ P ≤ R = T
    E) B > R ≤ A = M = Q ≤ T = L < G
    View Answer
    Option B
    Solution:
    in B) – L > R so ‘L ≥ R’ is definitely false
    In A), C) and D) – relation between L and R cannot be determined, so cannot be told that whether ‘L ≥ R’ is definitely false or not.
    In E) – L ≥ R is true
  4. Which of the following expressions is definitely false if the expression K > O = G ≤ D > F = P ≥ Q < T is definitely true?
    A) K > D
    B) F ≥ T
    C) F < G
    D) D = Q
    E) P < O
    View Answer
    Option D
    Solution:
    D < Q in given expression, so D = Q is definitely false
