Direction: In the following question assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusion among given some conclusion is/are definitely true and then give your answers accordingly:

Statement:

Z < E > A > L = P ≥ R ≤ T = F < U < H = G ≥ C > B = Y

Conclusions:

I. Z < F

II. F > Y

• Only conclusion I is true
• Only conclusion II is true
• Both conclusion I and II are true
• Neither conclusion I nor II is true
• Either I or II is true

Solution

Statement:

Z < E > A > L = P ≥ R ≤ T = F < U < H = G ≥ C > B = Y

Conclusions:

I. Z < F → False (Z < E > A > L = P ≥ R ≤ T = F → No definite relation between the two can be determined)

II. F > Y → False (F < U < H = G ≥ C > B = Y → No definite relation between the two can be determined)

Hence, Neither conclusion I nor II is true.

Directions: In the following question, assume the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusions among given conclusions is/are definitely true, and then give your answers accordingly.

Statements: W > B > H > N; L > J > K > N

Conclusions:

I. L > B

II. H > J

• Only I follow
• Only II follow
• Both I and II follow
• Either I or II follow
• Neither I nor II follow

Solution

Given statements: W > B > H > N; L > J > K > N

On combining: W > B > H > N < K < J < L

Conclusions:

I. L > B → False (On combining the two statements we get W > B > H > N < K < J < L, as there is no definite path the conclusion L > B is false)

II. H > J → False (On combining the two statements we get W > B > H > N < K < J < L, as there is no definite path the conclusion H > J is false)

Directions: Study the following information and answer the given questions:

Band and Bob are standing in a row, where Band is 18th from the left end of the row and Bob is 24th from the right end of the row. If both of them interchange their positions, then Band becomes 30th from the left end.

Question:

Find the new position of Bob from the right end?

• 34
• 35
• 38
• 37
• None of these

Solution

Position of Band from the left  end: 18th

Position of Bob from the right end: 24th

Hence, we can conclude,

There are 17 persons before Band and 23 persons after Bob.

If the position of Band and Bob is interchanged,

Position of Band from the left end: 30th

Hence, we can conclude that there are 29 persons standing before Bob.

The total number of persons in the row: 29 + 24 = 53

The new position of Bob is Band's previous position,

Since Band was 18th from the left end and there are 53 persons in the row, there are 35 peoples (53 - 18) are standing after Band.

Hence, Band is 36th from the right end and so Bob in the case.

Hence, None of these is the correct answer.

Directions: Study the following information and answer the given questions:

Band and Bob are standing in a row, where Band is 18th from the left end of the row and Bob is 24th from the right end of the row. If both of them interchange their positions, then Band becomes 30th from the left end.

Question:

Find the number of peoples in the row?

• 52
• 53
• 51
• 54
• Cannot be determined

Solution

Position of Band from the left  end: 18th

Position of Bob from the right end: 24th

Hence, we can conclude,

There are 17 persons before Band and 23 persons after Bob.

If the position of Band and Bob is interchanged,

Position of Band from the left end: 30th

Hence, we can conclude that there are 29 persons standing before Bob.

The total number of persons in the row: 29 + 24 = 53

Hence, 53 is the correct answer.
