L > R
K > M
Conclusion: K > R

For the conclusion to hold good, we can assume the following:
K > L --> A
M > L --> Option B is the opposite of this assumption
M > R --> E
M = L --> C
M = R --> D

Answer: B

From the above we have:

L > R
K > M

To complete : K > R

Prethinking, this can be the following ways:

M > = L , M > = R, K > = L.

Parsing through the options,

Only B is not there.


SO the answer is B

(D) Marcus and Rei are the same height.

(E) Marcus is taller than Rei.

Luis>Rei, kiko>Marcus,

conclusion is Kiko>Marcus

This is an except question.

The missing information is relation between Kiko and Luis. Both of them are related to Rei independently.

The correct answer will provide the information about relative height of marcus and Luis with respect to Kiko.

Only option B doesn't provide the relative height of Kiko and Luis.

SO, B is the answer.
