(b) if only conclusion II is true.
(c) if either conclusion I or II is true.
(d) if neither conclusions I nor II is true.
(e) if both conclusion I and II are true.

Q1. Statements: Q ≥ P < N, R = N ≤ W  
Conclusions: I. W > P II. Q ≥ R

Q2. Statements: G = C ≥ T = S, K ≥ C, S < V
Conclusions: I. K ≥ S II. T < V

Q3. Statements: D ≥ W, R = T, S ≥ T, W ≤ R
Conclusions: I. D ≤ T II. S ≥ W

Q4. Statements: U ≤ X < Z, B ≥ C = A, U < B
Conclusions: I. B ≥ Z II. A ≤ U

Q5. Statements: B = R ≥ Q < U = P ≥ S
Conclusions: I. B < U II. Q ≥ S
