a) Andy
b) Bob
c) Cary
d) Dora
e) Ellen


I am not sure if this is the shortest one:

Let's write down the information.
A = 2E..here let E = 1 then A = 2
B = E+3 => B = 4
C = 2B. => C = 8
D = B+E. => D = 5.

Thus C is more than others...

Option C is the correct answer..

a= 2e
b =3 +e
c = 2b = 6+ 2e (highest of all)
d = b + e = 3+ e +e = 3 + 2e

Ans. C
