10. A < B = C
11. A ≥ B ≥ C A≥C(Either A>C or A=C)
12. A = B ≥ C
13. A ≥ B = C
14. A ≤ B ≤ C A ≤ C (Either A < C or A = C)
15. A = B ≤ C
16. A ≤ B = C
17. A < B > C 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. A < C
