The given answer is correct. Let me explain in detail.
1. Joe(J) is younger than Kathy(K) = J < K
2. Mark(M) was born after Joe(J) = M < J
Combine 1 and 2, Result = M < J < K
3. Kathy(K) is older than Mark(M) = M < K
From this: M < J < K We can understand that K is older than M.
Hope this explanation may help you. Have a nice day!

Those who are confused about why it is not uncertain, please understand that;
"born after" ~ is same as ~ "younger".

|Here answer be C because Kathy can be older or younger than Mark which is not exactly explained here.|

|The answer should be C (uncertain).
Since it's given that 1st and 2nd statement are true that means J<K and M>J. Now the possible solutions are J<M<K or J<K<M.

|The answer should be C because no one's age is given plus if there was a statement "Kathy is older and Joe and Mark" then the answer would have been A. Here Mark can be older to Kathy.|
