In such type of questions, clues are given regarding comparisons among a set of persons or things with respect to one or more qualities. The candidate is required to analyse the whole information, form a proper ascending / descending sequence and then answer the given questions accordingly.

A. P
B. Q
C. S
D. T
E. Can`t be determined
Answer: A . P

Justification: In terms of height, we have : Q < P, R < P, T < S, S < Q. So, the sequence becomes : T < S < Q < R < P or T < S < R < Q < P. Whichever may be the case, P is the tallest.
