    232*2+32 = 496
    496*2+64 = 1056

DIRECTIONS for questions 9 to 10: In these questions, relationship between different elements is shown in the statements. These statements are followed by two conclusions. Mark answer
  1. If only conclusion 1 follows.
  2. If only conclusion II follows.
  3. If either conclusion I or II follows.
  4. If neither conclusion I nor II follows.
  5. If both conclusions I and II follow.
  1. Statements:A > B ≤ C = D ≤ E, C ≤ F = G >
    Conclusions: I.G ≤ H
    II. A > H

    Answer: Option D
    Statements: G > H so conclusion I is false
    Conclusion II is false as no relation is established between A and H.
  2. Statements: H ≥ T > S ≤ Q, T ≥ U = V > B
    Conclusions: I.V > S
    II. B ≤ H

    Answer: Option D
    Conclusions: I. V > S II. B ≤ H
    S < T ≥ U = V
    So conclusion I i:e V > S is false
    H ≥ T ≥ U = V > B
    So conclusion I i:e B ≤ H is false
