Question 48

# Among P,Q,R,S and T, who ranks third in the terms of salary obtained by them?I. T’s salary is more than P and Q but not more than S.II. R’s salary is lowest among them.

Solution

I : T’s salary is more than P and Q but not more than S.

=> $$S > T > P, Q$$

There is no information about R, hence we cannot find the person with third highest salary by I alone.

Similarly, statement II alone is also insufficient.

R’s salary is lowest among them.

=> $$S>T>P,Q>R$$

Thus, the person with third highest salary can be either P or Q.

$$\therefore$$ Both statements even together are insufficient.

=> Ans - (D)
