Directions (Qs. 16-20): In the follojwing questions, the symbols @, #, \$,* and & are used as illustrated below:

‘P # Q’ means ‘P is not smaller than Q’.

‘P \$ Q’ means ‘ P is neither smaller than nor greater than 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 neither smaller than nor equal to Q’.

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

A if only Conclusion I is true.
B if only Conclusion II is true.
C if either Conclusion I or II is true.
D if neither Conclusion I nor II is true.
E if both Conclusion I and II are true.

## ``` Statements: H @ N, N & W, W # V Conclusions: I. H @ V II. V @ N ```

Option: [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).
