(A) Kiko is taller than Luis.

(B) Luis is taller than Marcus.

(C) Luis and Marcus are the same height.

(D) Marcus and Rei are the same height.

(E) Marcus is taller than Rei.

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

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.

(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.
