I think the answer would be false, as per the question: first come Jeena, jasmine, Jason.

So what I say is make sure before you ans that the first 2 statements are true before applying Ur logic so that ur thought process will not go wrong.

What about the third statement?

Manish Omar said:   7 years ago
No,
This line clear " Of the three babies, Jasmine weighs the most".

That the jasmine >jenna>jason.

Like, I normally take 30-45 sec, s to solve these problems and till now not a single went wrong. So can someone tell me whether I'm going good enough or do I need to improve more?

Jenna weighs more than Jason.
Jason weighs less than Jasmine.

Here jenna and jasmine both weight more than jason, but we don't know the weight of any. So it is uncertain.

It is uncertain because if Jason weights 3 then jenna can weigh 4 or 5 viz more than jason (STMT1). And similarly jasmin can also weigh 4 or 5 viz. More than Jason. (STMT2). Hence Jason and jenna can either weigh 4 or 5. Hence uncertain.

Can anyone explain. Why can't we use "false" here?

Shouanna said:   1 decade ago
Its uncertain because, we know that Jenna weighs more than Jason, so Jason is light here. And we also know that he is also lighter than Jasmine. Since the weight of neither Jasmine or Jenna is determined, and they both weigh more than Jason, and the question did not compare them, we won't know if Jenna or Jasmine weighs more.
