From the question:
1.) M>N
2.) O>P
3.) P<Q
therefore, N=Q....so, C is the only one which can be true.

Answer is D.

1. M > N
2. O > P
3. Q > P
4. N = Q

Hence..

M > (N,Q) > P

No relation can be established anything related with Olean ( except the given condition ). Hence eliminating all the answer choices having Olean in it.

From established relation, we can conclude the correct answer choice as - D.

D.

How easily to eliminate wrong answer choices?


1)obseve that P is the smallest M is the biggest. and N and Q have reference to both M and P. only Olean is on the air.

2)eliminate all answer choices with Olean: A, B, C - as Olean has clear reference except for P

3) N=Q>P eliminate E.

So, it is D.

M -- N= Q---P ( M is oldest of all , Co's N&Q are at the same time ,P is the youngest )
We don't Know about Company "O". We eliminate the Ans choice Containing O ( A,B,C)
E is definitely wrong.. So Ans D) is correct one
