Coded Inequality

Unlike Simple inequality, Coded inequality has same signs but in coded form. Here in place of <, >, =, <=, >= we get coded symbols like @, %, #, \$, & etc.

We have to first replace the code and convert it into the inequality symbols and then we can proceed in the same way as above

Example:

• S © P means S is not greater than P.
• S ≠ P means S is neither greater nor equal to P.
• S @ P means S is neither greater nor smaller than P.
• S % P means S is neither smaller nor equal to P.
• S \$ P means S is not smaller than P.

First we have to decode the symbols:

• S © P means S is not greater than P.   =>   S<=P
• S ≠ P means S is neither greater nor equal to P. =>   S<P
• S @ P means S is neither greater nor smaller than P. =>   S=P
•  S % P means S is neither smaller nor equal to P. =>   S>P
•  S \$ P means S is not smaller than P. =>   S>=P

Q8). B % O, T  \$  O, T % X, X ©S

Conclusions

1. S  \$  B
2. T  %  S
3. T  %  B

Options:

1. Only I and II are true
2. Only II, III and IV are true
3. None is true
4. All are true
5. None of these.

Decoding the equation:    B > O <= T > X <=S

1. S  >=  B, False
2. T  >  S, False
3. T  >  B, False
4. X  <= C, False

None is true, Option 3 will be the answer.

Q9). V @ O, O  \$  G, G \$ B, B %S

Conclusions

1. S  @  B
2. T  %  S
4. X  % C

Options:

1. Only II is true
2. Only I, II are true
3. Only I, II and IV are true
4. Only III and IV are true
5. Only II and either I and IV are true

Decoding the equation:    V = O >= G >= B > S

1. B  =  V, Alone False,  V can also be greater than B
2. O  >  S, True
3. S  <= V, False
4. V  >  B, Alone False, V can also be equal to B

If we look the conclusion I and IV combine. Then we can easily find either conclusion I or conclusion IV is true.

Since Option 5 will be the answer i.e. Only II and either I and IV are true.

Reverse Inequality or ≠ Case

Here ≠ simply means > or <

Q11). Find out the relations from the below statements for the given conclusions?

Statements:

A ≠ B ≠ C = D ≠ E = F ≠ G = H

Conclusions:

1. A > C
2. A < C

Options:

1. Only II is true
2. Only II is true
3. Either I or II is true
4. Neither I nor II is true
5. Both I and II are true.
