Each problem consists of three statements. Based on the first two statements, the third statement may be true, false, or uncertain.


Mara runs faster than Gail.
Lily runs faster than Mara.
Gail runs faster than Lily.
If the first two statements are true, the third statement is

[A]. true
[B]. false
[C]. uncertain

Answer: Option B


We know from the first two statements that Lily runs fastest. Therefore, the third statement must be false.

Mara his running speed is (30 k/hr ) faster than the speed of Gail are 25 k/hr.
