I choose E.

E) Some sycamores are not as old as the youngest tulip trees. - As some sycomores are less than or equal in age to the Maple trees. So these are definitely younger than the youngest tulip tree(s)

t = tulip
m = maple
s1 = sycamore majority
s2 = sycamore minority
d = dogwood

t > m > d

s1 >m >= s2

A is not true
B may be true, but not a must
C may be true, but not a must
D may be true, but not a must

E MUST be true, since t > s2
