ya no matter what s and r are, if there is a difference of 5, then 4 integers are between them

if you have 1 and 6, you have 2,3,4,5

if you have 1.9 and 6.9, you still have 2,3,4,5

I dont think B help you....

r<n<s?
1. s-r=5

We don't know whether r, s are intergers.
if r,s are integers, e.g s=6, r=1, n could be 2,3,4,5
if r,s are NOT integers, e.g s=6.5, r=1.5, n could be 2,3,4,5,6
INSUFF

2. r and s are not integers
alone INSUFF

From 1 and 2.
s-r=5 & if r,s are NOT integers
no of integers = 5

Ans: C

St:1
s-r = 5
Insufficient.
E.g If s = 6, r = 1, then s-r = 5 and there are 4 integers between s and r.

If s = 0.5, r = -4.5, then s-r = 5 , but there are 5 integers between s and r. Insufficient.

St2:
r and s are not integers. Could be any range and hence any number of integers. Insufficient.

Using st1 and st2:
We know r and s are not integers and s-r must be 5, so the number of intgers between s and r must be 5.

Ans C
