Direction(3-4): In these questions the symbols @, %, ©, $and # are used with the following meaning as illustrated below. ‘P@Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q’. ‘P%Q’ means ‘P is neither greater than nor equal to Q’. ‘P ©Q’ means ‘P is not greater than Q’. ‘P$Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than Q’. ‘P#Q’ means ‘P is neither smaller than nor greater than Q’
Each of these questions has three statements followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. Assuming the given statements to be true, find which conclusion is definitely true:
3. Statements: 1. F $N 2. N @ D 3. D % B Conclusion I : F @ D Conclusion II : B @ N A. Either conclusion I or II follows B. Only conclusion I follow C. Neither conclusion I nor II follows D. Only conclusion II follows E. Both conclusions I and II follow. 4. Statements: 1. W # D 2. D © B 3. B$ H Conclusion I : H # D Conclusion II : B % W

5. All the even value digits of the following number are increased by 1 and all the odd value digits are decreased by 1, then what will be the sum of the 4th number from the right and fifth number from left? Number: 7 4 6 2 3 8 9 4 5
A. 8 B. 10 C. 15 D. 11 E. 24

1. Answer - Option D
Explanation -
9th to the left of 18th from the left = (18 – 9 =) 9th from the left = S
2. Answer - Option B
Explanation -

3. Answer - Option B
Explanation -
P@Q means P > Q
P%Q means P < Q
P ©Q means P ≤ Q
P$Q means P ≥ Q P#Q means P = Q Statements are: F ≥ N > D < B Conclusions are: F > D B > N Conclusion I is correct. Conclusion II can’t be true because both are related by opposite signs. Hence Option B is correct 4. Answer - Option C Explanation - P@Q means P > Q P%Q means P < Q P ©Q means P ≤ Q P$Q means P ≥ Q
P#Q means P = Q
Statements are:
W = D ≤ B ≥ H
Conclusions are:
H = D
B < W
There can be no relation between H and D as both are related by opposite signs.
B < W also does not hold true because B ≥ W.
Hence Option C is correct

3. Answer - Option C
Explanation -
Radha: May 8, Thursday
Geeta: May 10, Thursday
Revathi: June 8, Friday
We know that April ${1}^{st}$ = Tuesday
⇒ May ${1}^{st}$ = Tuesday + Remainder of $\frac {30}{7}$ = Tuesday + 2days = Thursday.
Also, May ${1}^{st}$ = Thursday
⇒ May ${8}^{th}$ = Thursday
Also, June ${8}^{th}$ = Thursday + Remainder of $\frac {31}{7}$ = Thursday + 3 days = Sunday
⇒ Revathi is wrong.
Also, May ${10}^{th}$ = May 8 + 2 days = Thursday + 2 days = Saturday
⇒ Geeta is also wrong.
Hence, only Radha is correct.
Hence, correct date is May 8, Thursday.
4. Answer - Option B

As MANSON is a 6 letter word so its code is 6 – 1 = 5
Similarly BELIEVED is a 8 letter word and its code is 8 – 1 = 7
Based on the similar pattern NEGOTIABLE is a 10 letter word so its code is 10 – 1 = 9
