(E) to me

Wheat > Rye and Oat > Rice

Only if Oat > Wheat, we wouldn't know the relative nutritional values of wheat and rice.

[quote="saurya_s"]Wheat has more nutritional value than rye. But since oats have more nutritional value than rice, it follows that wheat has more nutritional value than rice.

Any of the following, if introduced into the argument as an additional premise, makes the argument above logically correct EXCEPT:

W>Ry
O>R

Want to establish W>R

A. Wheat and oats have the same nutritional value.
W=O>R good

B. Rye has more nutritional value than oats.
Ry>O So W>Ry>O>R Good

C. Rye has more nutritional value than rice.
Ry>R
W>Ry>R Good

D. Rye and oats have the same nutritional value.
Ry=O
W>Ry=O>R Good

E. Oats have more nutritional value than wheat
O>W
and O>R
So which is bigger, W or R? Insufficient. :D

Hey HongHu,
