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.

**(i).** A, B, C, D and E are five friends.**(ii).** B is elder to E, but not as tall as C.**(iii).** C is younger to A, and is taller to D and E.**(iv).** A is taller to D, but younger to E.**(v).** D is elder to A but is shortest in the group.

**Which of the following statements is correct about B ?(i). B is not the tallest.(ii). B is shorter to E.(iii). When they are asked to stand in ascending order with respect to their heights, B is in the middle.**

** Option:**

**A.**Only (i) is correct

**B.**Only (i) and (ii) are correct

**C.**All are correct

**D.**All are incorrect

**E.**None of these

**Answer: A . Only (i) is correct**

** Justification:**

In terms of age, we have :

E < B, C < A, A < E, A < D

So, we have : C < A < E < B < A < D.

In terms of height, we have :

B < C, D < C, E < C, D < A

**B is shorter than C. So, B is not the tallest. Thus, (i) is correct.B and E are shorter than C. So, it cannot be conclude that B is shorter to E. Thus, (ii) is incorrect.A single definite order of heights cannot be obtained from the given information. So, (iii) is incorrect.**
