Arrange so that you have a string: \(u>t\), \(t>r\), \(r>q\) and \(s>t\) (this one do not fit so far).

So we have that: \(u>t>r>q\);

Next, as \(s>t\), then \(s\) can be more as well as less than \(u\), so the final ordering is either \(u>s>t>r>q\) or \(s>u>t>r>q\)

Hence, II and III are always true, but I may or may not be true.

Answer: E.

P.S. You can also use number line to mark the variables and visualize it.

from the question we can establish
u - t > 0, r - q > 0, s - t > 0, and t - r > 0
(u - t) + (t -r ) >0 ==> u > r III holds
(r - q) +(t - r) > 0 ==> t > q Since s > t and t > q ==> s > q II holds
