- Question 1 of 27
##### 1. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 1-4) : ‘∆’ means ‘is equal to’, ‘□’ means ‘is not equal to’, ‘+’ means ‘is greater than’, ‘–’ means ‘is less than’, ‘×’ means ‘is not greater than’, ‘÷’ means ‘is not less than’; a – b – c implies:##### Hint

a – b – c means a < b < c and this relation implies that b > a < c, i.e., b + a – c.

##### 2. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 1-4) : ‘∆’ means ‘is equal to’, ‘□’ means ‘is not equal to’, ‘+’ means ‘is greater than’, ‘–’ means ‘is less than’, ‘×’ means ‘is not greater than’, ‘÷’ means ‘is not less than’; a + b ÷ c implies:##### Hint

a + b ÷ c means that a > b ≥ c and this relation implies that c < b < a, i.e., c – b – a.

- Question 3 of 27
##### 3. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 1-4) : ‘∆’ means ‘is equal to’, ‘□’ means ‘is not equal to’, ‘+’ means ‘is greater than’, ‘–’ means ‘is less than’, ‘×’ means ‘is not greater than’, ‘÷’ means ‘is not less than’; a × b ÷ c implies that:##### Hint

a × b ÷ c means a ≤ b ≥ c and this relation implies that c ≤ b < a, i.e., c × b ÷ a.

- Question 4 of 27
##### 4. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 1-4) : ‘∆’ means ‘is equal to’, ‘□’ means ‘is not equal to’, ‘+’ means ‘is greater than’, ‘–’ means ‘is less than’, ‘×’ means ‘is not greater than’, ‘÷’ means ‘is not less than’; a + b + c does not imply:##### Hint

a + b + c means a > b > c and this relation does not imply that b < a < c, i.e., b – a – c.

- Question 5 of 27
##### 5. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 5-9) : ∆ = greater than, + = not greater than, θ = equal to, φ = not equal to, × = less than, □ = not less than; a × b θ c implies that:##### Hint

a × b θ c is equivalent to a < b = c. Hence between a and b , we have a < b or a ≠ b or a > b

Further b = c implies that b and c are interchangeable.

Hence (a), (b) and (c) are not possible.

[Observe that (b) states b < a which means a > b which is not possible. Similarly in (c) b > a which means a < b which contradicts the hypothesis.] (d) Is the correct answer which states that a ≠ b and b > c. Both statements are possible. - Question 6 of 27
##### 6. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 5-9) : ∆ = greater than, + = not greater than, θ = equal to, φ = not equal to, × = less than, □ = not less than; a □ b ∆ c implies that:##### Hint

Hypothesis (stem of the question) states a ≠ b & b > c. Only relation not possible between a and b is that of equality. Hence (a), (b), (c), (d) are all possible from the relation between a and b.

Coming to the second relation only (a) is possible . Hence (a) is the answer. - Question 7 of 27
##### 7. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 5-9) : ∆ = greater than, + = not greater than, θ = equal to, φ = not equal to, × = less than, □ = not less than; a ∆ b ∆ c does not imply:##### Hint

Note that in this question we have to determine which relation is not possible.

It is given that a > b > c.

Both relation in (a), (c) and (d) are possible. It is only (b) in which b = c is not true. Hence (b) is the answer.

[It should be noted that in case of negation of implication it is enough to show that just one relation is not possible.] - Question 8 of 27
##### 8. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 5-9) : ∆ = greater than, + = not greater than, θ = equal to, φ = not equal to, × = less than, □ = not less than; a × b θ c does not mean:##### Hint

With the situations given, a × b θ c mean a < b = c From option (a), a ∆ b φ c means a > b ≠ c, this is not true.

From option (b), a + b θ c means a ≤ b = c, this is true.

From option (c) ,a φ b θ c means a ≠ b = c, this is true From option (4), b θ c □ a means b = c ≥ a, this is true. So, the answer is (a). - Question 9 of 27
##### 9. Question

**Directions**(Qs. 5-9) : ∆ = greater than, + = not greater than, θ = equal to, φ = not equal to, × = less than, □ = not less than; c + b × a means:##### Hint

With the notations given, c + b × a means c ≤ b < a From option (a), a × b θ c means a < b = c, this is not true. From option (b), c ∆ b ∆ a means a > b > c, this is true.

From option (c), c × b × a means a < b < c, this is not true. From option (d), b θ c ∆ a means b = c > a, this is not true. - Question 10 of 27
