If a < b < c and d < a < e, which of the following is necessary in order to determine whether b < e?
A. c < e
B. b < d
C. c < d
D. a < e
E. d < c
Combining the two relations - a < b < c and d < a < e, we can arrive at d < a < b < c
e could take one in three places - between a & b | between b & c | greater than c
Therefore, in order to determine if b < e, we need to know that e is greater than c or
c < e (Option A)
