6.Combining all statements, we have,
A > C = B ≤ E
So, either C < E or C = E

7.A < B < C = D = E ≤ F
or, A < B < C = E ≤ F
or, A < B < C ≤ F
Thus, I follows.
Again,
A < B < C ≤ F
or, A < C ≤ F
Thus, II doesn’t follow.

8.Combining all statements, we have,
E ≥ D = A < B < C
or, E ≥ D < B < C
so, Can’t compare E and B.
Thus, I doesn’t follow.
Again,
E ≥ D < B < C
or, E ≥ D < C
Thus, II follows.

9.A = B ≥ C < D = E ≤ F
or, A = B ≥ C < E ≤ F
Can’t compare B and E
Thus, I doesn’t follow.
Again,
A = B ≥ C < E ≤ F
or, A = B ≥ C < F
Thus, II follows.

10.Combining all statements, we have,
F < A = B ≥ C
or, F < A ≥ C
Can’t compare F and C
Thus, I doesn’t follow.
We can’t compare E and A also.
So, II doesn’t follow.
