I suggest you add brackets using the operator precedence table :

so you get a clearer view on what goes with what.

Then just calculate step by step.

I'll give you one example for the first question - the rest I leave up to you :

16 % 3 < 22 ==  6 / 3 >= 2

is the same as :

(((16 % 3) < 22) ==  ((6 / 3) >= 2))

So :

((1 < 22) ==  (2 >= 2))

Or :

(1 ==  1)

Or :

1

which is TRUE.

Note that this step :

(1 ==  1)

is very dangerous in actual code, because there's no guarantee that both sides will be 1 (the only guarantee is that they will be values different from 0).

So, on some platforms, this might be :

(1 == 2)

which would be FALSE.

For these exercises you can assume that TRUE is always 1 though !
