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.

At the end of a cricket series, when five players were arranged iin the ascending order of runs scored by them, O was fourth while N was first. When they were arranged in descending order for wickets taken by them, K replaces O while O replaces L. M's position remains unchanged. K has scored more runs than M. L is having first rank in ine ranking and fifth in another.

**Who has scored the highest runs in the series ?**

** Option:**

**A.**K

**B.**L

**C.**M

**D.**Can't be determined

**E.**None of these

**Answer: B . L**

** Justification:**

In terms of runs scored, we have the ascending order as N < ? < ? < O < ?.

N has the first rank. So, L will be fifth in this order i.e. N < ? < ? < O < L.

K has scored more runs than M i.e. K > M.

So, the sequence becomes N < M < K < O < L.

In terms of wickets taken, the order becomes : L > M > N > K > O.

**L has scored the highest runs in the series.**
