The answer will be both II and III

III because - lets say that sam is 5 yrs today; rose must be 10 yr today with tina's current age being 8 yrs. 4 yrs down their ages will be sam 9, rose 14 and tina 12. therefore rose will be oldeer than tina (as she is today).

But III wont' work if Sam is 2 years old now.

Now
S=2
R=4
T=5

+4 years
S= 6
R=8
T=9
T<R

Today Rose is twice as old as Sam and Sam is 3 years younger than Tina. If Rose, Sam, and Tina are all alive 4 years from today, which of the following must be true on that day?

I. Rose is twice as old as Sam.
II. Sam is 3 years younger than Tina.
III. Rose is older than Tina.

OPEN DISCUSSION OF THIS QUESTION IS HERE: https://gmatclub.com/forum/today-rose-i ... 31477.html

Notice that we are asked which of the following MUST be true not COULD be true.

Stem says that "Sam is 3 years younger than Tina" which naturally be exactly so ANY number of years from today. So, II is always true. Which means that the answer is B (II only), D (I and II only) or E (II and III only).

Analyze options I and III
I. Rose is twice as old as Sam.
III. Rose is older than Tina

Now, if today Rose is 4 years old, Sam is 2 years old and Tina is 5 years old then after 4 years Rose will be 8 years old, Sam is will be 6 years old and Tina will be 9 years old, so neither option I nor option III holds true.
