    Option C
    Check all the options and find in which both A > C and D ≤ F are false
    C) option is A = B ≥ C = D ≤ E < F. In this A ≥ C but D < F
  2. Which of the following makes C $ E or B % E definitely true?
    A) A * B $ C @ D % E # F
    B) A # B * C $ D @ E # F
    C) A # B # C % D % E * F
    D) A @ B % C @ D * E * F
    View Answer
    Option B
    Check all the options and find in which both or at least one of C ≤ E and B ≥ E is true. (because or is given between C $ E or B % E
    B) option is A > B < C ≤ D = E > F. In this C ≤ = E. In all other options, both are false.
  3. If “A % B % C * D @ E $ F” is true then which of the following is definitely not true?
    (i) A # D
    (ii) C * F
