Reasoning Inequality Trick - Solve any Question within 10 seconds

Today I am going to share King Soldiers and Public technique to solve Inequalities. By using this technique, you can solve any question from Inequalities within 10 seconds. In every exam, at least 5 questions are asked from this topic.

Inequality trick

Points to remember

  • King is more powerful than Soldiers
  • Soldiers are more powerful than Public
  • Whenever there is a conflict between two Kings, then there will be no conclusion
  • When there is a conflict between two soldiers, then there will be no conclusion

Let King means < or >

kings in inequality

Soldier means ≥ or ≤

soldiers

Public means =

public

Case 1. 'King vs King'

king vs king

Suppose there is a war going on between two kings.Whenever the two kings faces each other means war. In other words conclusion will be wrong.
Note: Two signs opposite to each other will make the conclusion wrong But again if the signs are in same manner that will not make it wrong.
like this
If A > B < C  > D then A  < C = False , C   > A = False .
But
 If E > F > G > H then E  > G = True , F  > H = True , E  > H = True.

Statement:  A < D > C < E > B
Conclusions: 
  • C > B   → False
  • A < E   → False
  • D > B   → False          
In simple way ,Whenever these two sign comes in opposite direction the answer will be false.

Case 2.  ' Soldier vs Soldier'

soldier vs soldier

Whenever the soldiers face each other means again war(same apply here). In other words conclusion will be wrong.

Note: Two signs opposite to each other will make the conclusion wrong But again if the signs are  same then it will be true.
like this
If A ≥ B ≤C then A  ≤ C = False , C   ≥ A = False .
But
 If A ≥ B  C then A   C = True , C    A = True .

Example




Statement: B ≥ D ≤ A ≥ F ≤ C
Conclusions :
I. A ≥ C → False
II. B ≤ F → False
III. D ≥ C → False

Case 3. Sets Priority:

If they all are comes in order  then kings’ priority will be first ,soldier's second and public at last.
PRIORITY


CARTOON
Statement: P ≥ R > Q = T ≥ S
Conclusions :
 I. P ≥ Q → False
II. P > Q → True
III. Q ≥ S → True

Case 4.

When it occurs to you that the statement of order is opposite just change the sign into similar opposite direction

Change the sign into similar opposite /corresponding / alternative direction .
If A > B > F > C < D < E
than F < A → True [ ∵  A > B > F =  F < B <  A ] 
Example:
Statements  : A>B>F>C; D>E>C
Conclusions:
        I.    C < A → True
        II.   C > A → False


Statements  : R ≥ S ≥ T > U > X ; T < V <W
Conclusions:
        I.   R > X  → True [Note: Apply Case 3 here ]
        II.  X < R → True [Note: Apply Case 3 & 4 here ]

Statements  : K ≤ L ≤ M = N ; P ≥ O ≥N
Conclusions:
        K ≤  L ≤ M = N ≤ O ≤ P

 

     
                                         

 
   

   III.  K ≤ M   →  True
   IV   K < P    →  False
   V    K = P    →  False
Statement IV & V Apply Either Or

Case 5. Protocols

There are some rules in battle field which is that king only fights with king and soldier only fights with soldier.
So Whenever you find two conclusions which are false Just check for these two symbols.In Most of case where two conclusions are false and these two similar signs are not there respectively then that statement you can call it as Either Or but should check there variable it should same.


#Case Either Or :


Note : First thing you need to check whether in your conclusion any 2 or more conclusions are wrong
then if it is there then check whether the two variables are same If It happens then write it as 'Either or' but after checking their symbols.

Rules:
1.  Both conclusion should False
2. Should have Same Predicate or Variable 
3. Check the symbols

If 3 Condition is satisfied then write it as " Either Or' Other wise leave it.



Solved Questions :




 #Case Neither Nor :



There are some rules in battle field which is that king only fights with king and soldier only fights with soldier.
So Whenever you find two conclusions which are false Just check for these two symbols.In Most of case where two conclusions are false and these two signs are not there respectively then that statement you can call it as Neither Nor.

Note : First thing you need to check whether in your conclusion any 2 or more conclusions are wrong
then write it as 'Neither Nor' but before checking their symbols.

Rules:
1.  Both conclusion should False 
2. Check the symbols

If Both  Conditions are satisfied then write it as " Neither Nor' Other wise leave it.

  9. M © D means M < D

    D * K means D > K

    K @ R means K ≤ R

    R * F means R > F

    Conclusions : F © K ⟶ F < K (False)
    D * R ⟶ D > R (False)

    how it is possible by above method?

  10. I will upload more free papers here

    ReplyDelete
  11. statement : M < D > K ≤ R > F

    conclusion : a) F < K = False (Apply Case 4 & 1 or 2)

    Note: Case 1 or 2 basically says that sign in opposite direction will automatically makes the conclusion wrong.It does'nt matter whether it's king(< or >) or solder(≤ or ≥) are against each other.

    b) D > R = False ( Apply Case 1 or 2)

    Note: Case 1 or 2 basically says that sign in opposite direction will automatically makes the conclusion wrong.It does'nt matter whether it's king(< or >) or solder(≤ or ≥) are against each other.

  17. Sir in your sbi prelim model paper 1 in 65 que of input output foue steps are required to complete rearrangement..nd there in ans 3rd nd 4th steps are repeated..so thats wrong na??

    ReplyDelete
  18. actualy not evn dat much is reqd.. its too clear in d statement only -

    between K and F in d statement , der r two opposite signs ( ≤ and > ), which simply denotes dat no unique conclusion can be drawn., hence false

    same goes for D and R ( > and ≤ )

    ReplyDelete
  19. yess i too got it as 4 steps.. 3rd and 4th steps are same as per d soln.. in d last step ( 4th step ) - b will b popped up.. dats all.. total 4 steps :)

  21. sir i have a doubt!
    In first case,
    You say Two signs opposite to each other will make the conclusion wrong But again if the signs are same then it will be true. Like that why you say this
    A < E → False! But A < , < E both are same direction symbols! how it is possible? this is my big confusion! without understanding this, i unable go to next step! would you help me? please?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thank u v much.. Really helpful

    ReplyDelete
  23. A < D > C < E > B
    C > B → False
    A < E → False
    D > B → False Here A < E = False cauz there is a opposite sign between them. AC<E (Apply Case 1)

  24. I will sure post but it will take some days...,untill plz wait!@sushil kumar

  25. it is confusing rather use the water flow concept which is tremendous concept require few seconds to solve these kind of inequality.............that does not mean i am discouraging ur work............u r doing ur label best to try millions of people sir.........keep it up...................all the best

    ReplyDelete
  26. If ur conclusion is A > B then flow from A to B if u encounter at least one " > " symbol then the conclusion is correct.The same case also true for A < B.

    In case A ≤ B then flow from A to B such that all symbols u encounter are either all " ≤ " or a mixture of " ≤ " and " = ". If u encounter any other symbol during ur encounter then the conclusion is wrong.

    In case of A = B, flow from A to B and all symbols u encounter must be " = ",if u encounter any other symbol then conclusion is wrong.

    in every case first move from starting to ending i.e. if A > B ,then start from A and end at B , If u are unable to move from A to B then the conclusion is wrong.

    In summery , 1st move and then check the condition, if satisfied the conclusion is correct else false

  45. K ≤ L ≤ M = N ≤ O ≤ P
    Implies IV. K ≤ P → True
    which implies EITHER K < P or K = P
    Therefore
    I. K < P → False
    II. K = P → False
    are wrong it must have been
    I. K < P → True
    II. K = P → True

  50. You have edited the content, but it is still wrong. Please do not edit anything for my convenience rather edit it if you find it wrong. These are logical things and if one learns a wrong logic, it would not be possible for him/her to solve these questions ever.
    Let us take the above case as example.
    K ≤ L ≤ M = N ≤ O ≤ P
    I. K < O → False
    II. K = N → False
    III. K ≤ M → True
    IV K ≤ P → True
    V P ≥ K → True
    If we break up the above inequalities we get the following
    K < L OR K = L
    and same is the case for all other inequalities because they are either/or inequalities
    Therefore this is possible K = L = M = N
    which implies K = N, which has been given as false by Statement II.
    N < O OR N = O
    K = N as just proved above

    Therefore K < O OR K = O
    Thus K < O is true, which is given false by statement I.

    For egs in statement A>BD conclusion is A<D then which two signs to be considered between A & D?????

    ReplyDelete
  53. We rather understand through this

    You are saying this

    Q K ≤ L ≤ M = N ≤ O ≤ P
    Now m just saying let this:
    Let K=2,L=3,M=4,N=4,O=5,P=6
    Now tell me K< L or K = L

    2<3 & 2=3

    HOW it is possible

  75. I am not questioning your logic, I am just asking that going by your example of [K=2,L=3,M=4,N=4,O=5,P=6] isn't
    K < O=TRUE. As 2 < 5 is a fact that can not be denied.
