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

‘P @ Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than 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’

‘P % Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q’.

Now in each of the following questions assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the three conclusions follow and give answer accordingly.

Q1. **Statement**: A % B # C % D $ E; G @ F % B

**Conclusion**: I. G @ A II. A & G

(a) if only conclusion II is true.

(b) if only conclusion I is true.

(c) if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

(d) if either conclusion I or II is true.

(e) if both conclusions I and II are true.

Q2. **Statement**: R % T @ J % A $ S # H; I % T

**Conclusion**: I. H # A II. H % A

(a) if both conclusion I and II are true.

(b) if only conclusion I is true.

(c) if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

(d) if either conclusion I or II is true.

(e) if only conclusion II is true.

Q3. **Statement**: C @ A % R & P @ W; A @ N # T

**Conclusion**: I. T $ C II. T & P

(a) if only conclusion II is true.

(b) if either conclusion I or II is true.

(c) if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

(d) if only conclusion I is true.

(e) if both conclusions I and II are true.

Q4. **Statement**: P % T # D $ H @ S; H % N; T # G; H & M

**Conclusion**: I. G & M II. P % G

(a) if only conclusion II is true.

(b) if only conclusion I is true.

(c) if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

(d) if either conclusion I or II is true.

(e) if both conclusions I and II are true.

Q5. **Statement**: N @ V $ R # M % I # K; F & M; V % C; R % D

**Conclusion**: I. N # C II. D % F

(a) if only conclusion II is true.

(b) if either conclusion I or II is true.

(c) if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

(d) if only conclusion I is true.

(e) if both conclusions I and II are true.
