#### Mathematical operation and symbol notation

Direction: In the following information question, the symbol @, © S, %, and are used with the following meaning as illustrated below: Andhra Bank
'P S Q' means 'P is neither smallest than nor equal to Q'.
'P # Q' means 'P is not smallest than Q'.
'P @ Q' means 'P is not greater than Q'.
'P % Q' means 'P is neither smallest than nor greater than Q'.
'P © 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 three conclusions I, II and III given below them is are definitely true.

1. Statements:
M © T, T # J, J S K
Conclusions:
I. K © T II. M © J III. K @ M
1. None is true
2. Only III is true
3. Only II is true
4. Only I is true
5. Only I and II are true
##### Correct Option: D

M < T ...(i) T ≥ J ...(ii) J > K ...(iii)
From (ii) and (iii) T ≥ J > K or K < T.
Hence I follows.
From (i) and (ii) M and J can't be compared. Hence II does not follows.Nor can III follows.
