Height of Tower II is the average of the height of towers I and III which means height of Tower II lies between towers I and III.

$\Rightarrow$  III > II > I ………(1)

Height of Tower I is the average of the height of towers II and V which means height of Tower I lies between towers II and V.

$\Rightarrow$  II > I > V ……….(2)

Height of Tower V is the average of the height of towers I and IV which means height of Tower V lies between towers I and IV.

$\Rightarrow$  I > V > IV ………(3)

Combining (1), (2), (3)

III > II > I > V > IV
