Study the given information carefully to answer the given questions.
Six books A,B, C, D, E and F, each of different thickness, are kept on a table. C is thicker than A, but thinner than E. A is thicker than both B and D. E is not the thickest. The third thinnest book is 9 cm thick and the thickest book is 16 cm thick. (Note the thickness of all the books are in whole numbers.)

Question 66

If E is 5 cm thicker than A, then how thick is E ?


C>A and C<E
A>B and A>D
Also E is not the thickest, hence :-

F>E>C>A> B&D; (order of B and D not known, but both are thinner than A).

Hence, the 2 possible combinations :-
1. F>E>C>A>B>D
2. F>E>C>A>D>B

Also the third thinnest book i.e. A is 9cm. Thickest book i.e. F is 16 cm.

Now according to the question, E is 5 cm thicker than A, hence E = 14cm.
