Stimulus :
Rats > Mice
Gerbils > Hamsters

Therefore,
Rats > Hamsters

Combining :
Rats > Mice > Gerbils > Hamsters

(A) Gerbils are generally more active than rats. --> Incorrect, as per above

(B) Mice are generally more active than hamsters.

(C) Mice are generally more active than gerbils.

(D) Mice and gerbils are generally equally active.

(E) Rats and gerbils are generally equally active.

Hence, A.

Imo A

Form B, C, D, E we can establish the relation. A on the other hand does not give us concrete results.

Rats are generally more active than mice.

gerbils are generally more active than hamsters

A Gerbils are generally more active than rats. If this true then then rats can be more active than hamsters or hamsters can be more active than rats. We do not know for sure.
