Reasoning Coded Inequalities Topic Complete Explanation

Hi everyone today we have come up with a simple and easiest topic to score easy marks in any competitive exams that is Coded - Inequalities. Though it is very easy topic in reasoning without knowing proper rules anyone can find difficulties to solve these also. That is why our team came up with this post to clear your doubts in this subject.

In this session a statement/expression consists of a group of elements along with the relationship among them, which may be given in coded form. Before we start the discussing on the steps to be followed for solving these questions lets check the meaning of certain symbols first in below table (as we found some are having trouble in identifying symbols and their meanings).

S.No
Symbol
Meaning
1.
> 
First element is Greater than Second element.
2.
< 
First element is Smaller than Second element.
3.
=
First element is Equals to Second element.
4.
First element is Greater than or Equals to Second element.
5.
First element is Smaller than or Equals to Second element.
6.
First element is either greater than or smaller than Second element.

Now we are clear about the meanings of different symbols. Check the below table for relationships gives Conclusions for the Statements.

S.No
Statement
Conclusion
1.
A>B>C


A>C
2.
A>BC
3.
AB>C
4.
A=B>C
5.
A>B=C
6.
A<B<C


A<C
7.
A<BC
8.
AB<C
9.
A=B<C
10.
A<B=C
11.
AB≥C

AC(Either A>C or A=C)
12.
A=BC
13.
AB=C
14.
A≤B≤C

AC(Either A<C or A=C)
15.
A=B≤C
16.
A≤B=C
17.
A<B>C
Either 1 or 2 follows if any of the following cases (a, b, c and d) are given as they form a complementary pair.
a) 1. A>C         2. AC
b) 1. AC         2. A<C
c) 1. A<C         2. AC
d) 1. AC         2. A>C
18.
A≤B>C
19.
A<BC
20.
A>B<C
21.
A>BC
22.
AB<C

The above might clear most of the doubts that raised so far in your brains, but knowing is not enough we have to apply it and practice to keep up with exam time pace. Soon we will come up with examples that might help you in exams keep updated here..... Also if you like it please hit like and share it...

    1. Hi Nishu
      Actually these conditions are very rare in Exams... Before they are considered as neither nor. I believe that as competition is growing these conditions are implemented to make exams a little tough.
      Coming to explanation
      If A < B > C is given statement and conclusion follows any of the 4 cases they they are Either or or else it is neither nor
      Is this clears your doubt... If you do hit a like to it and suggest your friends about this blog

  7. He has told me that if a> b> c then we can move from a to c but if a> b <c then we cannot move since the direction of symbols is different.........I m so much confused please help, what exactly the logic of inequalities for bank po

    1. Hi,
      if a> b> c then it is obvious that a > c there is no moving like stuff in these...
      Don't use unnecessary crazy techniques for these kind of easy questions (easy marks) it will take hardly 3 or 4 minutes to solve these questions in exams using this method. I also believe this is the most easiest method which not even take much of your time in learning.

    2. Yes I have given sbi po previously but without any preparation.i am not taking any coaching

      Delete
    3. then you might have a basic idea about it and also the priority given to it by everyone.
      Anyway just thought that you still got 1 month means 30 days
      daily 6 hours (normally I won't suggest this much time)
      take only two subjects your choice practice any topic but be perfect about it after that just spend 1 hour for GK or Computer or Marketing daily

      In the next day change the combination but just refer the previous so that you might not forget them.
      Repeat this for 15 days
      Remaining 15 days take tests atleast one daily and practice them. Try to concentrate on accuracy than in number this will sure get you through.
      Last but not least
      never loose the Focus and be Confident and always hope for the best...
      I know saying is saying but
      Better late than never right
      All the Very Best

    1. Hi,
      In your question there is no relation between C and I, also F is not given in question which you mentioned in Conclusion 2.
      You cannot answer incomplete questions right.
      please check the question again.

      Delete
    2. Ok you didn't understood what I said before, anyway I will assume different conditions myself and explain it... take conclusions as
      1. C = P 2. D > C (as you mentioned 'F' which is not in question so I took 'C')

      1. if question is asked like this D ≥ B > C, C = I, I = Q > P then
      only 2nd follows

      2. if question is asked like this D ≥ B > C, C > I, I = Q > P then
      only 2nd follows

      3. if question is asked like this D ≥ B > C, C < I, I = Q > P then
      only 2nd follows

      Same for C ≥ I and C ≤ I conditions also
      I hope this clears your confusion.

      Delete
    3. I dnt know whats happening.i am placing sign, s between c and I but its not showing every time.c is smaller than f and f is greater than I.question is not wrong

      Delete
    4. It's ok so your question is like this one right
      D ≥ B > C, C < F > I, I = Q > P
      Cons:-
      1. C = P 2. D > F
      Both 1 and 2 do not follows

    1. Hi,
      Actually Venn model is very easy to solve for normal statements like All, Some
      but if there are No and Possibility then it will take more time comparing to solve through these rules
      so
      Use Venn model for normal statements
      and Above Rules for No and Possibilities.

  14. Mam if the statement is only A≥B=C and the conclusion is given only A=C then will it be correct or wrong

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Aditya,
      It is not correct

      if they have given 2 conclusions like A > C and A = C then it is Either or case
      if they have given A ≥ C then it is correct

      but if they have given only A > C or A = C then it is wrong.

      Delete
    2. I think if in conclusion  A ≥ C and A <C then only either condition follows????

      Delete
    3. No. Since A ≥ C is given no need to consider the other one just first is enough to answer

  15. Hi mam,
    If ASKED is written as 45211 then what is code of EIGHT

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. E=5, I=9, G=7, H=8,T=20

      so the answer will be any shuffled form of 28795

      (here they have only first digit of two digit number like 20 taken as 2 or 11 taken as 1 etc)

      Delete
    2. But mam why the code of K is 2, since they are taking first digit so it should be 1 for K......please tell me I m confused

      Delete
    3. Here code is shuffled not arranged in order that's why I mentioned 'Shuffled' in previous comment.

      Delete
    4. Explanation:

      A S K E D
      1 19 11 5 4
      (1+9=10) (1+1=2)
      1 1 2 5 4

      And, this number 11254 when reversed, we get 45211.
      Similarly, EIGHT will be solved.

      E I G H T
      5 9 7 8 20
      (2+0=2)
      5 9 7 8 2

      So, here the number 59782 when reversed becomes 28795.

      Hope this explanation is intelligible.

     3) All guns being baskets is a possibility.
     4) All houses are baskets.

    5. How should i start to study for rbi.... actually mam i m already working in syndicate bank as a clerk.... and i have planned for rbi only... is there any books specially for rbi...plz give me the propet suggestion mam

      Delete
    6. Actually it is not different from other tests but the issue is very less number of vacancies which is why you have to score high.
      As you already working as clerk in a bank, you will have an advantage of banking awareness and current affairs so you don't have to worry about this.
      You should practice Reasoning and Quants to hike the score (syllabus is same)
      Most of the people are having trouble with English I hope you are not like that (if you are, concentrate more on Blanks, cloze test, corrections etc if passage is story then go for it otherwise leave it)

      Finally as always Practice Practice it is the only way to get success...
      All the very best for your career.
