1) < , = , >=             2) > , = , >=             3) <= , = , >=            4) >= , = , >=             5) Other than given options

Answer & Explanation
  1. 2




  1. 2;

Second highest number = 746;

746/2 = 373

Third highest number = 519.

Difference = 519 – 373 = 146


  1. 4;

519 = 915;

328 = 823;

746 = 647;

495 = 594;

837 = 738;

Lowest number = 594


  1. 5;

519 = 951;

328 = 832;

746 = 674;

495 = 549;

837 = 783

Highest number = 951 or 519



  1. 5;From I, ‘a’ is a prime number. But a unique value of a is not known, a can be 2, 3, 5, 7……… Hence, statement I

alone is not sufficient. From II, again a unique value of a

is not known, a can be 2, 4,6…Hence statement II alone is not sufficient. Combining I and II, that ‘a’ is even and

prime. Hence, I and II together are sufficient to answer

the question.


  1. 4; From I and II, we get 2 equation in two variables. But

they are dependent. Thus, eventually we get one equation in two variables, which have infinite solution set.


  1. 3
  2. 2
  3. 1; Check option by pick method.

By options

1) W = X < Y <= A = B >= C >= D
