Reasoning Ability is an onerous section. With the increasing complexity of questions, it becomes hard for one to give it the cold shoulder. Today is the Day 11 of the SBI Clerk Prelims Study Plan. The only way to make the grade in this particular section in the forthcoming banking exams is to practice continuously with all your heart and soul. And, to let you practice with the best of the latest pattern questions, here is the Adda247 Reasoning Quiz based on the study plan and the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

Directions (1-5): In the following questions, the symbols \$, %, &, @ and # used with the following meaning as illustrated below:

‘P \$ Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than Q’
‘P % Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q’
‘P & Q’ means ‘P is neither greater than nor equal to Q’
‘P # Q means “P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q’
‘P @ Q’ means ‘P is not greater than Q’
Now, in each of the following questions assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the conclusions is/are definitely true and give your answer accordingly.
