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, E and F are six students in a class.**(ii).** B and C are shorter than F but heavier than A.**(iii).** D is heavier than B and taller than C.**(iv).** E is shorter than D but taller than F.**(v). **F is heavier than D.**(vi).** A is shorter than E but taller than F.

**Which of the following statements is true for F as regards height and weight ?**

** Option:**

**A.**He is lighter than E and taller than E.

**B.**He is heavier than B and taller than C.

**C.**He is heavier than B and C but shorter than D

**D.**He is lighter than E and also shorter than E.

**E.**He is lighter than B and C but taller than D.

**Answer: C . He is heavier than B and C but shorter than D.**

** Justification:**

In terms of height, we have :

B < F, C < F, C < D, E < D, F < E, A < E, F < A.

So, C < F < E < D, B < F, F < A < E

Thus, the sequence becomes :

B < C < F < A < E < D or C < B < F < A < E < D.

In terms of weight, we have :

A < B, A < C, B < D, D < F.

So, A < B < D < F, A < C.

Thus, the sequence becomes :

A < C < B < D < F or A < B < C < D < F or A < B < D < C < F.

**Clearly F is heavier than B and C but shorter than D.**
