     $ ® ³

  1. (b) Given statements:

A % B * C $ D Þ A > B = C ³ D   ………….(i)

E d G © D Þ E £ G < D………………….(ii)

Combining (i) and (ii), we get

A > B = C  ³ D >G ³ E 

Thus, B > G or G < B is true. Conclusion I (G % B Þ G > B) is not true 

but A > E or conclusions II (A % E) is true.

  1. (a) Given statement:

M© O d  U Þ M < O £ U …………(i)

Q d S d U Þ Q £ S £ U …………….(ii)

Combining (i) and (ii), we get

M < O £ U ³ S ³ Q

Thus, M < U or U < M is true. Hence I (U % M Þ U>M) is true.

Again S £ U is true. Hence II (S < U) may be true but not definitely so.

3.

(e) Given statements:

W * X d U Þ W = X £ U ………….(i)

W © O % U Þ X < O > U …………..(ii)

W © T % O Þ W < T > O …………..(iii)

Combining (i), (ii) and (iii), we get

W = X £ U < O < T

Thus, X < T or T > X is true.

Hence I (T % X) is true.

Again, U < T is also true.

Hence II (U © T) is true.

4.

(a) Given statement:

T % U * V $ O % R © S © B % C

Þ T > U = V ³ O > R < S < B > C

Thus, U > R is true. Hence I (U % R Þ U > R) is true.

Again, we can’t compare O and B. Hence II (O d B Þ O £ B) is not true.’

5.

(e) Given statement:

W © X d S Þ W < X £ S …………..(i)

X % U © W Þ X > U < W …………(ii)

U % Q Þ U > Q ……………(iii)

Combining (i), (ii) and (iii), we get

Q < U < W < X £ S

Thus, Q < W and I is true. Also, X > Q and II is true.
