Now, im each of the following questions assuming the given statements to be true, find which of the two conclusions I and II given below them is/are definitely true? Give answer
Statements: H @ N, N & W, W # V Conclusions: I. H @ V II. V @ N
Answer & ExplanationOption: [B]
H < N ........(i); N > W ........ (ii); W ≥ V .......... (iii)
From (ii) and (iii), we get
N > W ≥ V ........ (vi)
From (i) and (iv), no specific relation can be obtained between H and V. Hence, H < V (Conclusion I) is not necessarily true. But V < N (Conclusion II) follows from equation (iv).
