monday < tuesday
wednesday < tuesaday, are true conditions
monday > wednesday ..its uncertain

Anushka Garg said: (Jul 20, 2011)  
Uncertain, as monday and wednesday both's temperature is lower than tuesday but difference between the temperature of mon... and wed.... is not given.

Satish said: (Sep 1, 2011)  
monday < tuesday
wednesday < tuesaday, are true conditions

According to me the answer should be false but not uncertain because The temperature on Monday was lower than on Tuesday. Which means Tuesday was having high temperature according to the statement 1.

The temperature on Wednesday was lower than on Tuesday. In the statement 2 the temperature of Tuesday is again higher than Wednesday.

The temperature on Monday was higher than on Wednesday the third statement is false now because when compared to the two statements Tuesday should have the high temperature so the answer might be false rather than uncertain can any one clear it if I was wrong.

No specific temp values are given. So, we cannot identify.

M<T.
W<T.

Tuesday has always high temp. Where as Mon and Wed days have lower temp. But Mon days temp is how much (+/-) than Wednesday. That's uncertain. Answer is uncertain. Is it clear?

Yogesh said: (Jul 22, 2014)  
I think second option is true because read 2 statement very carefully tuesday is the highest temp than monday and wednesday.

Tanvi said: (Nov 28, 2014)  
Uncertain is the answer.

As even the temp of both Monday & Wednesday is lower than Tuesday. Its uncertain to identify Monday's temp, as Monday's temperature may or may not be higher than Wednesday.

The first option is true in this case. The question clearly speaks it out here. You just need to get into the question and understand it. The correct answer is TRUE.

Here,

M=W<T.
M>W.

Mounika said: (Sep 22, 2017)  
Answer is true.

M<T, W<T and W<T so it means how ever whether (+/-) Wednesday is higher than Monday.

Sonakshi Bose said: (Nov 18, 2017)  
According to me the right answer should be False, because if we consider three conditions simultaneously we will find out that sequence is given properly.

Bhuwan Joshi said: (Jan 16, 2019)  
From my viewpoint, answer must b true because already 2 statements are true (i.eM<T & W< T). A/C to question if 2 statement become true 3rd one also be true. So the answer is True.
