Directions (8-10): In the given questions, assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the given four conclusions numbered I,II and III is/are definitely true and give your answer accordingly.

8.Statements: W ≥ P,
P > G,
G < I,
I ≤ N
Conclusions: I.I > P
II.N ≤ W
III.N > G
a)Only III is true
b)Only I and II are true
c)All are true
d)None is true
e)None of these

9. Statements: U < D,
D = S,
S > Y,
Y ≥ W,
Conclusions: I.S > W
II.D > W
III.Y < D
a)Only III is true
b)Only I and II are true
c)All are true
d)None is true
e)None of these

10.Statements: A > N,
K ≥ N,
K = M,
R > M,
Conclusions: I.M = N
II.M = K
III.R ≥ A
a)Only III is true
b)Only I is true
c)All are true
d)None is true
e)None of these

Solution

(1-7):

 Floors Person Colour 9 B Blue 8 K Black 7 F Green 6 A Yellow 5 G Red 4 D Orange 3 J Pink 2 E White 1 C Grey

8.Combining all the statements we get,
W ≥ P > G < I ≤ N
Thus, I > P is not true.We can't compare N and W.
Hence II is not true. N > G is true.

9.Combining all the statements we get,
U < D = S > Y ≥ W
Thus, S > W is true.
D > W is true.
D > Y is true.

10.Combining all the statements we get,
A > N ≤ K = M < R
Thus, M = N is not true.
M = K is true.
R ≥ A is not true.
