No problem.

Nester and Elizabeth are in the top 10% of the class.

James is in the top 33% of the class.

Nancy has a lower gpa than Elizabeth, and since Nester and Elizabeth have equal gpa's, Nancy must also have a lower gpa than Nester.

A, B, and E COULD be true, but C MUST be true.

Bit interesting - How to determine top 10% or top 33% of a class...

Agree that the answer is 'C'.

One more for C.

Relational opertors can be used to such CRs.

James >= (Nestor and Elizabeth) > Nancy.

Nestor > Nancy (Option C) immediately flows.
