6.Statements:
D ≥ E > P > L < H,
R < N < L
Conclusions:

(7-8)Statements:
S = H ≤ J ≤ K = L,
H > N < B,
D ≥ L
7.Conclusions:
I.N < L
II.K = B

8.Conclusions:
I.S = D
II.D > S

9.Statements:

Solution
(1-5):

6.D ≥ E > P > L < H,
R < N < L
D ≥ E > P > L > N > R
R < N < L < H
Conclusions:
I.N > D : Not true
II.H > R : True

(7-8)
S = H ≤ J ≤ K = L,
H > N < B,
D ≥ L
B > N < S = H ≤ J ≤ K = L
S = H ≤ J ≤ K = L ≤ D

7.Conclusions:
I.N < L : True
II.K = B : Not true

8.Conclusions:
I.S = D : Not true
II.D > S : Not true
S is either smaller than or equal to D.
Therefore, either conclusion I or conclusion II follows.

9.B ≥ Z < X ≤ Q,
B ≥ Y = L
L = Y ≤ B ≥ Z < X ≤ Q
Conclusions:
I.L = Q : Not true
II.L > Q : Not true

10.C > D ≥ F,
R < M < F
C > D ≥ F > M > R
Conclusions:
I.C > M : True
II.R < D : True
