I have taken cities as l m n o p.

Given.

1. l > o.
2. n > m > p.

Also given, n = 32 inch rain and o = 44 inch rain.

Thus, o > n also l > o > n.
Thus, l > o > n > m > p.

So, l = 65 inch rain o = 44 inch rain n = 32 inch rain m = 27 inch rain p = 12 inch rain.

Given, forest has most rains and dessert has less rain.

Thus, l = forest and p = dessert also given coast has 27 inch rain. Thus m = coast.

Given, n = mountain.

Thus, the only left one o = valley.

Question is wrong. If we put sequencing all cities according to given then Polberg got 65 inches rain.

Nilesh said: (Aug 22, 2016)  
Last Stand got more rain than Olliopolis.

Means:

Last stand is > Olliopolis.

Olliopolis got 44 inches of rain.

Therefore greater than 44 is 65.

So, the answer is last stand.
