Reasoning Inequality solutions Tricks for SBI/IBPS PO & Clerk

Reasoning Inequality : Reasoning Inequality is one of the most important topics from which 3-5 questions are expected in the bank exams. Inequalities questions are either asked directly or in the coded form & both of the types are important. Here in this article, we are discussing the basics of inequality:

There are 5 types of inequality signs:

<Less than
>Greater than
Less than or Equal to
Greater than or Equal to
=Equal to


Let us consider two variables A and B, then inequalities can be shown as following:

A < BA is less than B
A > BA is greater than B
A ≤ BA is less than or Equal to B
A ≥ BA is greater than or Equal to B
A = BA is equal to B


Let us now look at the following table in which relation between two inequalities is established, if they have a common term:

Relation between A & BRelation between B & CThus, Relation between A & C
><No result
Three possibilities (>, <, =)

Directions (1-5): Relationship between different elements is shown in the following questions. These statements are followed by two conclusions. Mark your answer as:

(a) If only conclusion, I follows.

(b) If only conclusion, II follows.

(c) If either conclusion, I or II follows.

(d) If neither conclusion, I nor II follows.

(e) If both conclusion, I and II follow.

How to Solve Inequality Question with Answers

Q1. Statements: A ≤ D < C ≥ B < E
