And, to let you practice with the best of the latest pattern questions, here is the Adda247 Reasoning Quiz based on the exact same pattern of questions that are being asked in the exams.

Q1. In which of the following expressions will the expression ‘H < J’ be definitely true?
(a) G < H ≥ I = J
(b) H > G ≥ I = J
(c) J = I ≥ G > H
(d) H ≥ G > I < J
(e) None of these

Q2. Which of the following expressions will be true if the expression ‘K ≥ L > M ≥ N’ is definitely true?
(a) N ≤ K
(b) K = M
(c) K < N
(d) L ≥ N
(e) None is true

Q3. Which of the following expressions will be true if the expression ‘M ≥ K < T = Q’ is definitely true?
(a) Q < K
(b) M ≥ T
(c) M < Q
(d) T = M
(e) None is true
