e. I and III

I think answer should be (A).

r/s must be less than 1 because r<s and hence r/s must be less than 1.
rs may or may not less than 1 because take for example r=0.9 and s=1.1, then rs = .99 < 1.
but take for example r=0.9 and s=1.9, then rs=1.71 > 1.
s-r can be less than 1 or not. 1.9 - 0.9 = 1 is not less than 1

Hence only I is true. What is the OA?
