B is the way to go. Picking numbers and a bar-chart help to solve this question. Let's say that Luis is 100, and Marcus is 50. Rei can still be 90, and Kiko can be 80. Conditions satisfy but it is not true.


Cheers,

2. L>R>K>M in second case K is less than R..

Consider with the given senario two possibilities exists
1) K > M > L > R

2) K > L > R > M

Now with knowing

a ) K > L with this information we still cannot fix the above possibilities .
b) L > M possibility 2 occurs
c) L = M possibility 2 occurs
d) M = R possibility 1 occurs
e) M > R possibility 1 occurs

Hence i feel a is the answer can any one comment on this '>' here means greater in terms of height !!

Looks like E
in brief: L>R; K>M; Hence K>R. Where is the linking point? If K>M in order K to be '>' than R, M must be '>' than R.

Although it took time that is 1 minute 47 second still attempted right
My approach
luis>rei
kiko>marcus
kiko>rei
1.. can be possible
2..hold on-- It the left over choice
3...yes possibe refer option A
4.. Yes possible since both are shorter than luis and Kiko
5..Possible since still atleast shorter than Kiko
I am not good at explaining things by the way just learning
