John has more money than Mary but less than Bill. If the amounts held by John, Mary, and Bill are x, y, and z, respectively, which of the following is true?

(A) z < x < y

(B) x < z < y

(C) y < x < z

(D) y < z < x

(E) x < y < z

Since John has more money than Mary, x > y, or y < x.

Since John has less money than Bill, x < z.

So we have:

y < x < z
