i am sorry. i sent my reply wih no explenation:

J > K
**** N> M

(N=K THEN N IS EXACTLY BELOW K
IF L>M THEN L IS FROM THE RANGE OF BIGGER THAN M TO BIGGER THAN G (POSSIBLE NOT MUST) SO L could be bigger then J /equal to J/bigger then N (OR K)/ equal to N(K) /must be bigger then M

S1- L>N COULD BE TRUE BUT NOT MUST.
S2- L>J - COULD BE TRUE BUT NOT MUST
K<L- COULD BE TRUE BUT NOT MUST (N=K)
J>M MUST BE TRUE -LOOK AT THE INEQUALITY
K<M- IF K=N AND N>M THEN K>M .

if create the chain correctly (DO STAIRS) it can take less than 1 minute:you start with J>K THEN SEE THAT N=K PUT IT BELOW K. THEN U KNOW THAT N>M AND IT'S SOLVED.

J>K
L>M
M<N
K=N

Hence (all Ks can be replaced by Ns and vice versa):
M<K
J>N

J>K and M<K (which is the same as K>M)
result in J>K>M
which says J>M

Is any of these inequalities given? Yes, the last one!
