i think a=3

Since c>a>d, we can have the seq. of numbers (in increasing order) as

X d X a X c X --> where b can take any 'X' place. Since b=2

d=1 and a=3

a = 3.

as given by the stem, C is greater than 2 numbers a and d.
b is 2 and the numbers are unique so C can only be 4 to be greater than 2 numbers other than b=4.
since C is greater than a and a is greater than d, then a must be 3 to be greater than d.

a must be 3

c<a<d

if b=2

then this is the only solution given the conditions

1 2 3 4
d b a c

Yeah. Correct!

I just wonder whether actual GMAT will have an easy question like this

If you're not doing to well in the Q section you just may see a lot of questions like these. Then again for people who score low in Q section this would probably not be very easy. So it depends. You just might see a question like this for question number one. A lot of people may think this is a lot harder than it is especially when under the pressure of the exam.
