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,

The answer is B.

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

Thanks

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 !!

(D) Marcus and Rei are the same height.
(E) Marcus is taller than Rei.

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.
