Reasoning: Inequalities Questions for IBPS PO Prelims

Direction (1-5): Relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. Find if the conclusions also follow or not.

1. Statements: A > B ≥ F = P < L < G;  F = E > M ≥ S;  M ≤ D = U
Conclusions:
I. A > M
II. D < L
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: L < G ≤ D > P = E > R;  S > D < W = J; M ≥ K ≥ Y > J
Conclusions:
I. R < S
II. M > E
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
3. Statements: P ≤ D = O < M ≤ B;  L ≥ S = E ≥ P; M ≤ L ≥ C = R
Conclusions:
I. D ≥ L
II. L > D
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
Solution:
For conclusion II:: from 1st and 2nd expression –  L ≥ P ≤ D – so there can be any relation between L and D
Now from 1st and 3rd expressions – L ≥ M > O = D, so L > D – This confirms L > D
4. Statements: K = F > S < V ≤ E;  N = P < V ≤ M = Q;  G > N ≥ X = B
Conclusions:
I. E ≥ B
II. E < 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
Solution:
From 1st and 2nd expressions – E ≥ V > P = N ≥ X = B, so definitely E > B is true, so makes both conclusions false.
5. Statements: A = S > D ≥ F < G; D < H ≤ P > K; R > L = P ≥ U
Conclusions:
I. A > L
II. L < 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 D

1. Which of the following symbols should be placed in the blank spaces respectively (in the same order from left to right) in order to complete the given expression in such a manner that both ‘M > F’ as well as ‘S ≥ J’ definitely true?
M _ N _ J _ F _ C _ S
A) ≥, >, =, ≤, <
B) ≥, ≥, =, ≤, ≤
C) ≥, >, >, ≤, ≤
D) ≥, >, =, ≤, ≤
E) ≥, >, <, ≤, ≤
Option D
Solution:
M ≥ N > J = F ≤ C ≤ S
2. In which of the following expressions does the expression ‘N < H’ and ‘F > G’ definitely hold true?
A) P = N < F ≥ H = K > G > D
B) D > A ≤ G ≥ N = F ≤ G < H
C) W < O > G < H = F ≥ S > N
D) S ≤ G < N = A ≤ F ≤ X ≤ H
E) G ≥ H ≥ F = A ≥ N = K < G
Option C

3. Which of the following symbols should replace the questions mark (?) in the given expression in order to make the expression ‘J < N’ definitely true? B > M > J ≤ G = Y ? L = N < S
A) >
B) <
C) ≤
D) =
E) Either < or ≤
Option B
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 E
Solution:
In E) – A > P , so A < P is definitely false.
In B, C, and D option, no relation can be determined between A and P, so cannot be identified as definite false.
5. Which of the following expressions is definitely false if the expression E > O = G ≤ K > F = W > Q < T is definitely true?
A) O > F
B) Q < G
C) Q ≥ K
D) T > F
E) F < E
Option C
Solution:
Q < K in given expression, so Q ≥ K is definitely false

Hello….Ambika yr English ka bta do kese prepare kare quiz Karne per bahut jayada wrong ho jate hhh

1. Ambiiii

hii misha 🙂
english me mainly errors or cloze test pe focus kro or daily practice krte rho 9-10 sets of both
RC ke liye padhte rho jab bhi time mile 🙂
