EG


let a = 9
b = 2
c = 1

Then 9 > 2 > 1 and this maintains the question stem condition.

3 > 2 > 1

c = 1/2
b = 1/3
a = 1/4

1/2 > 1/3 > 1/4 this the second case.

Sqrt of 1/4 = 1/2

1/2 > 1/3 > 1/4 is possible.

Now last case

a > c > b

a = 1/4
c = 1/6
b = 1/8

1/2 > 1/8 > 1/36 possible.

All the cases are possible.

Answer choice E
