Direction: In the following information question, the symbol #, %, @, S and © are used with the following meaning as illustrated below:
'P # Q' means 'P is smallest than Q'.
'P % Q' means 'P is not greater Q'.
'P @ Q' means 'P is neither smallest than nor equal to Q'.
'P S Q' means 'P is neither greater than nor equal to Q'.

In 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.

  1. Statements:
    M S T, T @ K, K © D
    I. D S T II. K S M
    1. if only conclusion I is true
    2. if only conclusion II is true
    3. if either conclusion I or conclusion II is true
    4. if neither conclusion I nor conclusion II is true
    5. if both conclusion I and II are true
Correct Option: A

M < T ... (i) T > K ...(ii) K = D ...(iii)
From (ii) and (iii) T > K = D or D < T.
Hence I follow
From (i) and (ii) K and M can't be compared
Hence II does not follow
