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

If the information above is true, 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.

Hi, Can someone explain how this logic is placed?
I worked out as: Ja > Ne = EZ > Na
But guess there is some flaw in it.

Answer is C

Give numerical values to each statement, then just compare.

C must be true:
Since Nestor and Elizabeth have the same GPA and Nancy has lower GPA than Elizabeth, Nancy then also has lower GPA than Nestor

I go with C too.

James is on top 3-rd of the class while Nelson and Elizabeth are on top 10-th. top 10-th could also mean they are on top 3-rd.

J>2/3
Ne>9/10
E=Ne
Na<E
(A) J>E don't know
(B) J>Na don't know
(C) Ne>Na Yes, from Ne=E and Na<E
(D) E>J and Na>J don't know The first one is (A). This can be eliminated even if you don't know that (C) is right. Since if this is right that means (A) is also right, but we can't have two answers.
(E) Ne>Na and J>Na the first one is (C) the second one is (B). This one can be immediately eliminated by the same reason.

Thanks HongHu for that explanation.
I didn't consider "top 10-th could also mean they are on top 3-rd."
