The equation can be setup as

J>K=N>M
L>M
But there is no relation between J, or L and K, N and L can be deduced.

(A) Letty is taller than Nancy.
As written this is not deducible.

(B) Letty is taller than June.
As written this is not deducible.

(C) Kristin is shorter than Letty.
As written this is not deducible.

(D) June is taller than Maria.
Yes it is deducible. As J > M.

(E) Kristin is shorter than Maria.
False. K>M and not shorter than M.

Apurva,

Whenever I see a CR like this I take about 20 sec to diagram it as attached. It works everytime as these type of problems are very similar and having a visual aid gives you the answer without really even thinking about it. Hope you find it useful.

Edit - With this method only the answer that you can arrive to by following the arrows is the correct one. Should be pretty straight forward.

Guys, I haven't come across a question of this sort in OG11. Is this an LSAT type CR? Please let me know. Thanks!

J>K
L>M
N>M
K=N
==> J>M

CR is a shorter version of LSAT. Reviewing LSAT book help you improve CR sense.
Furthermore, OG has similar question, but I do not remember exactly. The question mentions KALE ... has more nutrient than ...

I've placed an order for LSAT superprep to beef up on my CR concepts. Have you been doing CR from superprep?

You are right, I do remember reviewing a question with Kale ..something..something..from OG 11 and I used the same logic to solve the question.

Later!

June (6) >Kristin (4)
Letty (4)> Maria(3).
Maria (3) < Nancy (4)

(A) Letty is taller than Nancy.

(B) Letty is taller than June.

(C) Kristin is shorter than Letty.

(D) June is taller than Maria.

(E) Kristin is shorter than Maria.
