# SBI PO PRELIMS REASONING QUESTIONS

In the subsequent questions, the symbols @, \$, *, # and ! are used with the following meaning as illustrated underneath:

‘P \$ Q’ meaning ‘P is not smaller than Q’.

‘P @ Q’ meaning ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q’.

‘P # Q’ meaning ‘P is neither greater than nor equal to Q’.

P ! Q’ meaning ‘P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q’.

‘P * Q’ meaning ‘P is not greater than Q’.

Now, in each of the subsequent questions assuming the given statements to be correct, find which of the four conclusions I, II, III and IV given below them is/are definitely true and give your answer accordingly.

1. Statement A ! C, C \$ V, V # G, G * M

Conclusions: I. M @ V

ii.G @ A

III. V ! A

iv.V# A

a) Only I is true

b) Only III is true

c) Only IV is true

d) either III or IV true

e) either III or IV and I true

2.Statement R * D, D \$ J, J # M, M @ K

Conclusions: I. K # J

ii.D @ M

III. R # M

iv.D @ K

a) None is true

b) Only I is true

c) Only II is true

d) Only III is true

e) Only IV is true

###### 3.Statement H @ T, T # F, F ! E, E * V

Conclusions: I. V \$ F

ii.E @ T

III. H @ V

iv.T # V

a) Only I, II and III are true

b) Only I, II and IV are true

c) Only II, III and IV are true

d) Only I, III and IV are true

e) I, II, III and IVtrue

4.Statement D # R, R * K, K @ F, F \$ J

###### Conclusions: I. J # R

ii.J # K

III. R # F

iv.K @ D

a) Only I, II and III are true

b) Only II, III and IV are true

c) Only I, III and IV are true

d) I, II, III and IV true

e) None of these

5.Statement M \$ K, K @ N, N * R, R # W

Conclusions: I. W @ K

ii.M \$ R

III. K @ W

iv.M @ N

a) Only I and II are true

b) Only I, II and III are true

c) Only III and IV are true

d) Only II, III and IV are true

e) None of these

1. ###### Option E

N = B, B ≥ W, W < H, H ≤ Q

So, N = B ≥ W < H ≤ M

1. M > W (True)
2. H > N (False)

III. W = N or

1. W < N

N ≥ W

1. Option A

R ≤ D, D ≥ J, J < M, M > K

So, R ≤ D ≥ J < M > K

1. K < J (False)
2. D > M (False)

III. R < M (False)

1. D > K (False)

So, none is true

1. Option B

H > T, T < F, F = E, E ≤ V

So, H > T < F = E ≤ V

1. V ≥ F (True)
2. E > T (True)

III. H > V (False)

1. T < V (True)

So, only I, II and IV are true

1. ###### Option E

D < R, R ≤ K, K > F, F ≥ J

So, D < R ≤ K > F ≥ J

1. J < R (False)
2. J < K (True)

III. R < F (False)

1. K > D (True)

So, only II and IV are true

1. ###### Option E

M ≥ K, K > N, N ≤ R, R < W

So, M ≥ K > N ≤ R < W

1. W > K (False)
2. M ≥ R (False)

III. K > W (False)

1. M > N (True)

So, only IV is true
