P<Q>R<T or P<Q>R=T or P<Q=R=T or P<Q=R<T
P<Q>R<T or P<Q>T or P<T
Either P=T or P<T or P>T(no definite conclusion)

In coded inequality , inequality symbols (<,>,=,≥ and ≤) are replaced by some other symbols.

Coded Inequality questions for bank exams

In the following questions, the symbols $,@,%, & and # are used with the following meanings as illustrated below:
‘P&Q’ means ‘P’ is greater than ‘Q’.
‘P%Q’ means ‘P’ is smaller than ‘Q’.
‘P@Q’ means ‘P’ is either greater than or equal ‘Q’.
‘P$Q’ means ‘P’ is either smaller than or equal to ‘Q’.
‘P#Q’ means ‘P’ is equal to ‘Q’.
Assuming the Statements given in each of the question as true deduce which of the two inferences 1 and 2 is/are true.
A) If only conclusion I is true.
B) If only conclusion II is true.
C) If either conclusion I or II is true.
D) If neither conclusion I nor II is true.
E) If both conclusions I and II are true1)

Q1.statement N%P,P&R,R$L
Inference:1. N$L
               2. N@L
Solution: lets rewrite the statement and inference
Q1.statement N<P,P>R,R≤L
Inference:1 .N≤L
               2. N>L
Relation between N and L
N<P>R<L or N<P>R=L
N<P>R<L or N<P>L
Either N<L,N>L or N=L ,which can be also written as N≤L or N>L.( Note:N≤L and N>L will form complementary pair)
Thus answer is C.
(Tip: successive similar signs ‘> > > > > …>’ will be replaced by a single ‘>’ and ‘<<<<<<<<…..<’ will be replaced by a single ‘<’. No replacement is possible if signs are mixed like ‘< >’ or ‘> <’ )
