Some times these kinds of answers confuse me thoroughly. So, In order to make my selection clear, I select inputs in a restrictive order so that I can eliminate conflicting conditions. Given one and hale second to solve in exam, I think this may be a helpful tool.


J (6) > K (5)
L (4) > M (3)
M (3) < N (5)
K = N = 5

(A) Letty is taller than Nancy. (4 > 5 – Eliminate it)
(B) Letty is taller than June. ( 4 > 6 – eliminate it)
(C) Kristin is shorter than Letty.(5 < 4 – Hold it)
(D) June is taller than Maria. (6 > 3 – Hold it)
(E) Kristin is shorter than Maria. (5 < 3 – Eliminate it)

Answer: D
