### 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>B≥C 3. A≥B>C 4. A=B>C 5. A>B=C 6. AC or A=C) 12. A=B≥C 13. A≥B=C 14. A≤B≤C A≤C(Either AC 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. A≤C b) 1. A≥C         2. AC 18. A≤B>C 19. ABB≤C 22. A≥B

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...

Practice Tests:

1. good explanation.....

1. Thank you... :-D

2. nice explanation good job

1. Already posted so many questions... you can find them in Tests tab
if you didn't find them please comment here I will provide them to you...

3. can you please explain 17-22 no statements.

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

4. Thanks.. Syllogisms ki be short tricks plz

5. Usefull thanks

1. I'm Glad you found it useful Rajdeep...

6. Is there any direction related rule in inequality, my friend told me

1. I'm sorry I didn't heard of it before. Can you please send any relating material to our mail dreamjobadda@gmail.com if possible. I will verify it and reply you

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.

8. There is only 1 month left for sbi po exam, I dnt know how to prepare:(

1. Don't worry... have you gone through any coaching or any exams before...

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

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

9. Statement-d>=b>c, ci, i=q>p
Con- 1. C=p 2. D> f

Can you please explain this 4 me I think both statemdnts are wrong so neither 1 and 2 follows is the answer

1. Hi,
You forgot to mention relation between C and I here

10. Statement-d>=b>c, ci, i=q>p
Con- 1. C=p 2. D> f

Can you please explain this 4 me I think both statemdnts are wrong so neither 1 and 2 follows is the answer

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.

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.

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

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

5. Thnk u so much

6. A> b =d<=e
Conclusion 1. A> c
2. A <=c
3. A> m
4. A <=m

7. U r website is great.really.i get quick replies from u.thnks a lot

8. I'm so glad that you found this useful thanks to you too

9. I believe your question got typing mistake again please use symbols from the post above

10. A> b < c > = d < = e.........this is statement and conclusions are correct

11. Hi mam,
I want to know that in syllogism which method is best......venn diagram or aeio method

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.

12. I really appreciate your hard work. Clean and Superb Explanation. I searched so many books for my doubts in coded inequalities now I got clear all my doubts. Thank very very much keep posting and GOD BLESS YOU.

1. Hi Sathish,
I'm so happy that my posts are in handy for you. Thank you for your warm Hearted Blessings and All the Very best to your Successful Future.

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

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.

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

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

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)

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

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

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.

16. If  A≥B C.......to kya isme either condition lagegi

17. 1. Statement : No toy is a doll. All guns are boys.All houses are dolls. All dolls are baskets.
Conclusions:
2) No gun is a  house.
3) All guns being baskets is a possibility.
5) No doll is a gun.

Which one is definately false

18. Mam can u explain the above syllogs question with both methods

19. Mam due to your concept my doubt is cleared ....thanks a lot

20. Thanks a lot mam

1. You are welcome Devindra

2. Thanks a lot mam

3. You have cleared my doubt of syllolism...

4. When the rbi vacancies are coming....

5. Hi Devindra,
As per now it released only Junior Engineer in Civil and Electrical only there is no info regarding Assistants and Grade B Officers

I will let you know ASAP when there is an update on this...

6. Hi Devindra,
RBI has released its Assistant Notification 2015
check it here

7. 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

8. 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.

9. Thanks for excellent solution.....u r correct mam....i have to practice more and more that i m doing....

1. Hi Akayastha,
I didn't get you.

22. t=v=w
i) t>w ii) w>=t

1. Hi Laeniya,
I think question is not complete, could you please post complete question and options so that I can explain it to you.
Use the above symbols from my post in your comment as they are not available on keyboard to type

23. Superb Explanation .... Keep Going ,,,,,

1. Thank You Karthik...

24. If, statement is
A>BD=E>FID
ii) A<D
Again,
i) A<G
ii) A≥G

So, conclude it fast and reply too.

1. If you have problem in posting comment here send it to my mail dreamjobadda@gmail.com

25. C)
Either 1 or 2 follows(1. A>C 2. A≤C) is marked wrong and right answer is marked as-no conclusions? plz help>

and great website..thanks

26. if the question contains A is neither greater than nor equal to B...which symbol is to take?

1. You have to take less than symbol hemanth

27. I DONT KNOW HOW TO USE THIS TABLE IN SOLVING CODED INEQUALITIY :(

IF MY QUESTION IS

A>=B=C ; BA
E<C

HOW SHOULD I USE THIS TABLE TO SOLVE THIS QUESTION?

28. Ma'm if statements are given as
Q=Z,C>=G,G>=Q,Q>=R,J>=C
conclusions are
1) G>=Z
2) C>=R
Which one is correct?
1) only conclusion 1 follows
2) only conclusion 2 follows
3) either conclusion 1 or 2 follows
4) neither conclusion 1 or 2 follows
5) both conclusions 1 and 2 follow

1. Hi Manish,
it is opt 5

1) G ≥ Q = Z so G ≥ Z

2) C ≥ G ≥ Q ≥ R so C ≥ R

29. Ma'm if statements are given as
Q=Z,C>=G,G>=Q,Q>=R,J>=C
conclusions
1)G>=Z
2) C>=R
which one is correct?
1) only conclusion1 follows
2) only conclusion2 follows
3) either conclusion 1 or2 follows
4) neither conclusion1 or 2 follows
5) both conclusions 1 and 2 follow

30. Ma'm I dont understand eg 17 to 22.
