James' grade point average puts his in the top third of the graduating class of college A. Nestor is in the top tenth of the same class. Elizabeth has the same grade point average as Nestor. Nancy has a lower grade point average than Elizabeth.

If the information above is tru, which of the following must also be true?

a) James has a higher grade point average than Elizabeth
b) James has a higher grade point average than Nancy
c) Nestor has a higher grade point average than Nancy
d) Elizabeth and Nancy both have a higher grade point average than James
e) Nestor and James both have a higher grade point average than Nancy

Could someone provide the answer and explain?

I have OA, but that does not seem to be convincing. I would post it later.

C seems to be always true. Becuase Nancy has lower GPA when compared with Nestor.

Nestor and Elizabeth=90%
James= 66.33%
Nancy<90% (could even be less than 66.33%), therefore Nestor>Nancy

Answer is C.

Since Nestor has the same grade as Elizabeth, and Elizabeth has a higher grade than Nancy's, Nestor's grade must be higher that Nancy's

Since Nestor has the same grade as Elizabeth, and Elizabeth has a higher grade than Nancy's, Nestor's grade must be higher that Nancy's. Therefore, C must be the correct answer.

Thanks Guys. OA is C.

I misunderstood top-third as 3rd in the class and top-tenth as 10th in the class and choose E instead :-(
