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.
A. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
B. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
C. Either I or II is sufficient
D. Neither I nor II is sufficient
E. Both I and II are sufficient
Correct Answer : A.
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.
