### Question 1

In a certain language different symbols represent different operators as follows.

1. ∂ means X = Y
2. ∏ means X ≤ Y
3. Ξ means X ≥ Y
4. √ means X < Y
5. ∇ means X > Y

Statements: T ∇ U; U ∂ V; V √ W;

Conclusions:

1. T ∇ V
2. U Ξ W
A

both I and II are true.

B

only conclusion II is true.

C

only conclusion I is true.

D

either I or II can be true.

Soln.
Ans: c

The statements can be translated to T > U = V < W. Conclusion I translates to T > V. Conclusion II translates to U ≥ W. So we can see that only conclusion I is true.

Please remember that in such questions ≯ (not more than) is same as ≤, and ≮ (not less than) is same as ≥.

### Question 2

In a certain language different symbols represent different operators as follows.

1. ⊗ means X = Y
2. Ξ means X ≤ Y
3. ∏ means X ≮ (not less than) Y
4. ∃ means X < Y
5. µ means X > Y

Statements: B Ξ C; C ∃ D; D ∃ E;

Conclusions:

1. B ∃ E
2. D ⊗ B
A

both I and II are true.

B

only conclusion II is true.

C

only conclusion I is true.

D

either I or II can be true.

Soln.
Ans: c

The statements can be translated to B ≤ C < D < E. Conclusion I translates to B < E. Conclusion II translates to D = B. So we can see that only conclusion I is true.

Please remember that in such questions ≯ (not more than) is same as ≤, and ≮ (not less than) is same as ≥.

### Question 3

In a certain language different symbols represent different operators as follows.

1. ∧ means X = Y
2. ρ means X ≤ Y
3. ∑ means X ≮ (not less than) Y
4. Θ means X < Y
5. ¥ means X > Y

Statements: B ρ C; C ∧ D; D ρ E;

Conclusions:

1. B ¥ D
2. E Θ B
A

both I and II are true.

B

only conclusion II is true.

C

only conclusion I is true.

D

neither I nor II is true.

Soln.
Ans: d

The statements can be translated to B ≤ C = D ≤ E. Conclusion I translates to B > D. Conclusion II translates to E < B. So we can see that neither I nor II is true.

Please remember that in such questions ≯ (not more than) is same as ≤, and ≮ (not less than) is same as ≥.

### Question 4

In a certain language different symbols represent different operators as follows.

1. \$ means X = Y
2. ∏ means X ≤ Y
3. ∇ means X ≮ (not less than) Y
4. Δ means X < Y
5. @ means X > Y

Statements: K @ L; L @ M; M ∏ N;

Conclusions:

1. K Δ N
2. M @ K
A

both I and II are true.

B

only conclusion II is true.

C

only conclusion I is true.

D

neither I nor II is true.

Soln.
Ans: d

The statements can be translated to K > L > M ≤ N. Conclusion I translates to K < N. Conclusion II translates to M > K. So we can see that neither I nor II is true.

Please remember that in such questions ≯ (not more than) is same as ≤, and ≮ (not less than) is same as ≥.

### Question 5

In a certain language different symbols represent different operators as follows.

1. \$ means X = Y
2. ¢ means X ≤ Y
3. ∩ means X ≥ Y
4. « means X < Y
5. @ means X > Y

Statements: D « E; E « F; F \$ G; G \$ H;

Conclusions:

1. H @ D
2. D « G
3. E « H

Which of the above conclusions is/are true?

A

All.

B

both I and II.

C

II only.

D

both II and III.

Soln.
Ans: a

The statements can be translated to D < E < F = G = H.

The conclusions translate to:

1. H > D(True)
2. D < G(True)
3. E < H(True)
