**(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.

**If a selection is to be made among them who would be relatively older and also taller, who among them should be chosen ?**

** Option:**

**A.**A

**B.**B

**C.**C

**D.**D

**E.**E

**Answer: B . B**

** 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

**A and C are youngest so they cannot be selected. D is shorter than two persons A and C.B is shorter than C only and is also relatively older. So, B will be selected.E is younger than B.**
