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

  1. Statements:
    V © K, K @ B, B S M
    Conclusions:
    I. V © B II. M © K III. M © R
    1. None is true
    2. Only I is true
    3. Only II is true
    4. Only III is true
    5. Only II and III are true
Correct Option: C

V < K ...(i) K ≥ B ...(ii) B > M ...(iii)
From (i) and (ii) V and B can't be compared. Hence I does not follow.
From (ii) and (iii) K ≥ B > M or K > M or M < K
Hence II follows.
From (i) and (iv) V and M can't be compared. Hence III does not follow.
