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).** Six friends P, Q, R, S, T and U are members of a club and play a different game of Football, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball, Badminton and Volleyball.**(ii).** T who is taller than P and S plays Tennis.**(iii).** The tallest among them plays Basketball.**(iv).** The shorter among them play Volleyball.**(v).** Q and S neither play Vollyball nor Basketball.**(vi).** R plays Volleyball.**(vii).** T is between Q who plays Football and P in order of height.

**Who will be at the third place if they are arranged in the descending order of their height ?**

** Option:**

**A.**Q

**B.**P

**C.**S

**D.**T

**E.**None of these

**Answer: D . T**

** Justification:**

In terms of height, we have :

T > P, T > S, Q > T > P.

R plays Volleyball, so R is the shortest.

Q plays neither Vollyball nor Basketball.

So, Q is not the tallest. Thus, U is the tallest.

So, the sequence becomes : U > Q > T > P > S > R.

Now, T plays Tennis, U, being tallest, plays Basketball. R plays Volleyball. Q plays Football. Both P and S play either Cricket or Badminton.

**The descending order of height is U, Q, T, P, S, R.Clearly, T is at the third place.**
