## Coded Inequality for IBPS PO/Clerk

Directions:(1-5) In the given questions, the symbols π, #, α, £ and & are used with the following meanings
‘X π Y’ means ‘X is not smaller than Y’
‘X # Y’ means ‘X is neither smaller than nor equal to Y’
‘X α Y’ means ‘X is neither greater than nor equal to Y’
‘X £ Y’ means ‘X is not greater than Y’
‘X & Y’ means ‘X is neither greater than nor smaller than Y’
Now, in each of the questions, assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the four conclusions I, II, III and IV given below them is/are definitely true and give your answer accordingly.

1.Statements:
A £ B, B & C, C π D, D # E
Conclusions:
I. C & A
II. C # A
III. E α B
IV. D £ B

a. Only either I or II is true
b. Only III and IV are true
c. Only either I or II and III are true
d. Only either I or II and IV are true
e. Only either I or II and III and IV are true

E. Only either I or II and III and IV are true

Statements
A £ B means A ≤ B;
B & C means B = C
C π D means C ≥ D
D # E means D>E
From all the statements above A ≤ B = C ≥ D>E
Conclusions
I. C & A means A = C
II. C # A means C>A
III. E α B means E<B (True)
IV. D £ B means D ≤ B (True)
So either I or II and III and IV are true.

2.Statements:
M & N, N £ O, O #A, AπB
Conclusions:
I. B α O
II. O π M
III. N α M
IV. M £ B

a. Only I and II are true
b. Only I, II and III are true
c. Only II, III and IV are true
d. All I, II, III and IV are true
e. None of the above

A. Only I and II are true

Statements
M & N means M = N
N £ O means N ≤ O
O # A means O >A
A π B means A ≥ B
From all the statements above M = N ≤ O >A ≥ B
Conclusions
I. B α O means B< O (True)
II. O π M means O ≥ M (True)
III. N α M means N < M (False)
IV. M £ B means M ≤ B (False)
So only I and II are true.

3.Statements:
D α E, E # F, F & G, G £ H
Conclusions:
I. D α F
II. G α D
III. F & H
IV. H # F

a. None is true
b. Only III is true
c. Only IV is true
d. Only either III or IV is true
e. Only either III or IV and II are true

D. Only either III or IV is true

Statements
D α E means D < E
E # F means E > F
F & G means F = G
G £ H means G ≤ H
From all the statements above D < E > F = G ≤ H
Conclusions
I. D α F means D < F (False)
II. G α D means G < D (False)
III. F & H means F = H
IV. H # F means H > F
So either III or IV is true.

4.Statements:
A π B, B α C, C # D, D & E
Conclusions:
I. A # C
II. D α B
III. C # E
IV. E α B

a. None is true
b. Only I is true
c. Only II is true
d. Only III is true
e. Only IV is true

D. Only III is true

Statements
A π B means A ≥ B
B α C means B < C
C # D means C > D
D & E means D = E
From all the statements above A ≥ B<C>D=E
Conclusions
I. A # C means A > C (False)
II. D α B means D < B (False)
III. C # E means C > E (True)
IV. E α B means E < B (False)
So, only III is true.

5.Statements:
D # E, E π U, U £ V, V α W
Conclusions:
I. D # U
II. W # E
III. E # V
IV. W # U

a. Only I and III are true
b. Only I and IV are true
c. Only II and III are true
d. Only I, II and IV are true
e. None of the above

B. Only I and IV are true

Statements
D # E means D>E
E π U means E ≥ U
U £ V means U ≤ V
V α W means V < W
From all the statements above D>E ≥U≤V<W
Conclusions
I. D # U means D > U (True)
II. W # E means W >E (False)
III. E # V means E > V (False)
IV. W # U means W > U (True)
So only I and IV are true.

8.Statements: A / B, C * D, C – E, B % F
Conclusions:
I. A * F
II. E + D
III. C + A
IV. F + C

a. If only conclusion IV follows
b. If only conclusion III follows
c. If both conclusion II and conclusion IV follow
d. If only conclusion II follows
e. If both conclusion I and conclusion III follow

D. If only conclusion II follows

Directions:(9-10) In each of these questions, the symbol -, &, +, * and \$ are used with the following meaning as illustrated below:
‘M & N’ means ‘M is not smaller than N’.
‘M * N’ means ‘M is neither greater than nor equal to N’.
‘M + N’ means ‘M is neither smaller than nor equal to N’.
‘M \$ N’ means ‘M is not greater than N’.
‘M – N’ means ‘M is neither greater than nor smaller than N’.
Now in each of the questions assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the four conclusions I, II, III and IV given below them is/are definitely true and give your answer accordingly.

9.Statements:
S + K, K & E, E – L, L \$ U
Conclusions:
I. U + E
II. U – E
III. S + L
IV. K & U

a. Only either I or II is true
b. Only III is true
c. Only III and IV are true
d. Only either I or II and III are true
e. None of these

D. Only either I or II and III are true

Statements
S + K means S > K
K & E means K ≥ E
E – L means E = L
L \$ U means L ≤ U
From all the statements above S > K ≥ E = L ≤ U.
Conclusions
I. U + E means U > E
II. U – E means U = E
III. S + L means S > L (True)
IV. K & U means K ≥ U (False)
So either I or II and III are true.

10.Statements:
U \$ S, S & N, N – E, E * I
Conclusions:
I. E \$ S
II. I + S
III. U * N
IV. U \$ E

a. Only I is true
b. Only I and IV are true
c. Only I and II are true
d. Only II and IV are true
e. None of these

A. Only I is true

Statements
U \$ S means U ≤ S
S & N means S ≥ N
N – E means N = E
E * I means E < I
From all the statements above U ≤ S ≥ N = E < I
Conclusions
I. E \$ S means E ≤ S (True)
II. I + S means I > S (False)
III. U * N means U < N (False)
IV. U \$ E means U ≤ E (False)
So only I is true
