Question : Among T, V, B, E and C, who is the third from the top when arranged in the descending order of their weights ?

Statements :
I. B is heavier than T and C and is less heavier than V who is not the heaviest.
II. C is heavier than only T.

  • 1I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
  • 2II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
  • 3Either I or II is sufficient
  • 4Neither I nor II is sufficient
Answer:- 1

From I, we have: B > T, B > C, V > B. Thus, V is heavier than each one of B, T and C. But V is not the heaviest. So, E is the heaviest.
Thus, we have the order. E>V>B>T>C or E>V>B>C>T. Clearly, B is third from the top.
