If the information above is true, which of the following must also be true?

(A) Luis weighs more than Ned.

(B) Luis weighs more than James.

(C) Kelly weighs less than Luis.

(D) James weighs more than Mark.

(E) Kelly weighs less than Mark.


Combining statement 1 and 4 -> James > Kelly = Ned
Statement 2 and 3 translate to Luis > Mark < Ned

Assume numbers to double check. James = 90, Kelly = Ned = 80, Luis = 70, Mark = 65
Evaluating answer options to check which of them is true

(A) Luis weighs more than Ned. -> False
(B) Luis weighs more than James. -> False
(C) Kelly weighs less than Luis. -> False

(D) James weighs more than Mark. -> True
(E) Kelly weighs less than Mark. -> False

From the available answer options, Option D(James weighs more than Mark) is definitely true.
