12)

A > B > = D

Hence, A > D. Conclusion (I) is true.

L > = P = A > B

Hence, L > B. Conclusion (II) is also true. So answer is option 5.

13)

Q > = T > M > Z < B. Hence, Q and B cannot be compared. Conclusion (I) is not true.

T > = M > Z. Hence, T > Z. So, conclusion (II) is not true. So answer is option 4.

14) B > C >= D = N < A.

As B and A cannot be compared, conclusion (I) is not true.

C > = D = N. Hence, C >=N. So, conclusion (II) is true. Ans. 2

15) B = X >=Q >=C. Hence, B > = C, which means B > C or B = C. Either (I) or (II) is true. Ans. 3

16) M > S >=O = N < A.

As contradictory symbols (><) are there between the terms B and A, they cannot be compared. But, Either (I) or (II) follow.  Ans. 3

(17-21)

Each word is coded as follows :
1. The first letter and the last letter of each word are coded in such a way that the first thirteen letters in the English alphabet are coded with the last thirteen letters of the English alphabet in the reverse order as follows, and the letters are interchanged.
2. The digit in the code language corresponds to the number of the letters of the given word after subtracting '2'.
For example, the word WEALTH is coded as S4D

W (FIRST LETTER) is coded as D
H (LAST LETTER) is coded as S

Digit in the code language = Number of Letters - 2 (6-2=4)

and PEACE is coded as V3K

P (FIRST LETTER) is coded as K

E (LAST LETTER) is coded as V

Digit in the code language = Number of letters - 2(5-2 = 3)
