# SBI/IBPS PO & Clerk – Reasoning INEQUALITIES CONCEPT

## 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:

 SIGNS MEANING < 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:

 SIGNS MEANING A < B A is less than B A > B A is greater than B A ≤ B A is less than or Equal to B A ≥ B A is greater than or Equal to B A = B A 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 & B Relation between B & C Thus, Relation between A & C > > > > ≥ > ≥ > > ≥ ≥ ≥ < < < < ≤ < ≤ < < ≤ ≤ ≤ > < No result ≥ ≤ Three possibilities (>, <, =)

Let us now have a look at some problems:

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
