Consider the following statements relating to the level of poker play of four players P, Q, R, and S.
I P always beats Q II. R always beats S III. S loses to P only sometimes IV. R always loses to Q
Which of the following can be logically inferred from the above statements?
(i) P is likely to beat all the three other players (ii) S is the absolute worst player in the set
(A) (i) only
(B) (ii) only
(C) (i) and (ii)
(D) neither (i) nor (ii)
Explanation: All three can Beat S, but S loses to P only sometimes. So, (ii) can not be inferred from the given statements.
Defeating in Poker is not transitive. P beats Q. Q beats R and R beats S. Yet S loses to P only sometimes, meaning that S mostly wins against P. So we can not logically infer that P is likely to beat R.
