(E) to me

Wheat > Rye and Oat > Rice

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

Could you please explain how to approach these logic/comparison questions? I hate them and i know i can't hate them. I see them and i lose it and i can't even take time and read them. Please anyone with a 101 approach on this kind of questions please help me. Thanks
