(A) Luis weighs more than Ned.
(B) Luis weighs more than James.
(C) Kelly weighs less than Luis.
(D) James weighs more than Mark
(E) Kelly weighs less than Mark.

This one should be easy. I suggest to start with the last one.
So it says.
J>K
L>M.
N>M
K=N

Which MBT? OK

(A) Luis weighs more than Ned.
(B) Luis weighs more than James.
(C) Kelly weighs less than Luis.
(D) James weighs more than Mark---> Yes, this is it. J>K>M
(E) Kelly weighs less than Mark.---> No, actually K>M

So (D) it is, took me around 40 secs to write this.
Hope it helps
Cheers!

Kudos rain!
