1. 1;
Combining (i) and (ii), we get
T>R>N=M>Q
Comparing R and Q, we get R > Q. Thus only conclusion I is true and conclusion II is not true.

2. 5
Combining (i) and (ii), we get
We get
N>L>D>P
N > P and N > D
So, P < N > D,
Thus conclusion I is true.
Again, We get,
L > P is true, Thus conclusion II is true.

3. 5
Combining (i) and (ii), we get
T>K>P>Q>R
We get,
T > R. Thus conclusion I is true.
Again, we get
K > Q, T > P. Thus conclusion II is true.

4. 2
Combining (i) and (ii), we get
We get,
S=Q>T>J=N>R
T > R and Q > N, Thus conclusion I is not true.
Again,
T < Q is true. Thus conclusion II is true.

5. 5
Combining (i) and (ii), we get
We get,
W>S>P>N>T
W > T and P > T, Thus conclusion I is true.
Again,
W > N and S > T or T < S, Thus conclusion II is true.

Solutions (6-10):

6. (3):
(i) 7 days < 2 days (ii) 10 days < 5 days
from (i) & (ii) we can find the days he took.
