T must be second is fine. But C says it must be either second or third. How can it be third?

B seems to be the answer, however, I am not sure what "fourth or better" means.

hmm... C?? I go with D though .... can some one explain why D is wrong?

C > h > b
t>h

this is how I drew my logic from.

How come C, then statement will be false, since nobody finishes in between Cold Molasses and Three-Leg Charlie?

I think the OA is C.

B is false, because it states that there are 4 or less horses. However, there is no information about the number of horses in the argument. For example, if the quant is 6, B is wrong.

C is correct. Even though the argument assumes that Three-Leg Charlie could come third, it still does not refute that Three-Leg Charlie could come second.

C is the only answer

I think it shud be D

there can be two possibilities

B(all horses) C T
or
B(all horses) T C

I don t sees how T can be at the third place

therefore rule out C

Plz comment on my approach

So CM finished first, rule out A

Quote:
horse finished behind Bag O'Bones.


BoB finished last, rule out B & E

Also, no horse finished between Cold Molasses and Three-Leg Charlie. Therefore (assume no ties):


If CM is 1st, TLC m/b 2nd. Rule out D, leaving only C
