Directions (Q. 6-10): In these questions, relationship between elements is shown in the Statements. The Statements are followed by Conclusions I & II. Give answer:
1) if only Conclusion I is true.
2) if only Conclusion II is true.
3) if either Conclusion I or II is true.
4) if neither Conclusion I nor II is true.
5) if both Conclusions I and II are true.

6. Statements: L < U, U > G, G  S
Conclusions: I. L > S II. G < L

7. Statements: A ≤U, U = L, L < J
Conclusions: I. J > A II. J > U

8. Statements: C≤S, S < D, D > M
Conclusions: I. D > C II. S > M

9. Statements: Y < G, G ≥H, H = R
Conclusions: I. R = G II. R < G

10. Statements: P≥Q, D > P, S = D
Conclusions: I. S= P II. S > P

1. (5) Economics

2. (5) 5-1

3. (3)

4. (3)

5. (4)   L < U ....(i); U > G ....(ii);  S  ≥G  ...(iii) Combining (ii) and (iii), we get S > G ≥ U   ....(iv) 6.  Now from (i) and (iv), we do not get any specific relation between L and S. Hence conclusion I (L > S) is not true. On a similar basis conclusion II (G < L) is also not true

7. (5)  A  ....(i), U = L ....(ii), J > L ...(iii) Combining (i), (ii) and (iii), we get J > U =  A≥ L ==>    J > A and J > U. Hence, both the conclusions are true

8. (1)  C ≤S ...(i); S < D ...(ii); D > M ...(iii) Combining (i) and (ii), we get C ≥S ≥D  ....(iv) From  (iv) we  get D  > C.  Hence, Conclusion  I is  true. From  (iii)  and (iv),  we  do  not get  any specific  relation

between S and M. Hence, conclusion II is not true
