1 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : Y < G ...(i); G≥ H G  ...(ii); H = R ...(iii)Combining (ii) and (iii), we getG ≥ H=R ⇒ R = G or R < GHence, either conclusion I or conclusion II is true
2 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : P ≥ Q ...(i); D > P ...(ii); S = D ...(iii)Combining (ii) and (iii), we getS = D > P ⇒ S > P. Hence, conclusion II is true. But I is not true
3 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : In the given arrangement the first and the second places are occupied by words; the third and the fourth by numbers; the fifth and the sixth by words; and the seventh and the eighth by numbers.Words occupy place in alphabetical order while numbers occupy place in descending order.Whenever a word or a number gets arranged other elements shift one place rightward.Since it is a case of ‘Arrangement’, previous steps can’t be obtained with certainty.
4 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : Input: bring home 42 73 15 goal 32 typeStep I: bring goal home 42 73 15 32 typeStep II: bring goal 73 home 42 15 32 typeStep III: bring goal 73 42 home 15 32 typeStep IV: bring goal 73 42 home type 15 32Step V: bring goal 73 42 home type 32 15Since all the elements of Input get arranged in Step V, it is the last step
5 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : Input: bench 47 63 advance 13 29 again betweenStep I: advance bench 47 63 13 29 again betweenStep II: advance again bench 47 63 13 29 betweenStep III: advance again 63 bench 47 13 29 between
