I think all the answers can be correct as it totally depends on narrator, how he narrates the mugger.

@Nirveek.

We can not apply our opinions but we must think over the answer. As stated in the question A, B, C and D are the four witnesses. Since tall, thin and middle-aged is most commonly the description given by the 4, we must assume that B is intact correct.

Why not option C ?

I think young will be more appropriate than middle-aged.

Maybe he was one of the witness and gave out these elements to the concerned officer.

How do you saying tall, thin, middle-aged are the elements?
