Solution

The correct option is **A** The data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question:

From I: R>N>P>O>Q/M>Q/M

From II: ≥≥M≥≥≥… (i)

R>N>O and ≥≥≥≥P>Q… (ii)

Now from (i) and (ii), we get

Hence N is the second heaviest.

From I: R>N>P>O>Q/M>Q/M

From II: ≥≥M≥≥≥… (i)

R>N>O and ≥≥≥≥P>Q… (ii)

Now from (i) and (ii), we get

Hence N is the second heaviest.
