I will go with A.

St1: w-z>2

This is correct in any situation.
if we assue w as a first and z is last then range is w-z which greater than 2.
Similarly if z is the second and w is the first then range will again more than 2 even if other number are equal to z or greater than z.
Same with w is third and z is last , the range is again greater than 2.

So, A is sufficient.

E for me

Due to nowhere in the text says that w is the last. Furthermore, you should not assume that the set is arranged in the increasing order

IMO E. We are not given the sequence of the numbers.

My initital answer was E, but I was wrong.
OA is A

I agree with Twoone, I tried a few numbers

w= 5
x = 3
y = 1
z = 2

w= 10
x = 7
y = 7
z = 7

w= -10
x = -2
y = -7
z = -7

Must be A.

Range is difference between max and min value.
when w-z>2 it doesn't matter whether w and z are max and min values.or middle numbers.... because difference between max and min always >2 ... so range >2
