Madison lives ten miles away. Frances lives five miles away, Samantha, seven miles. Alexis is farther away than Frances, but closer than Samantha. Approximately how far away from the airport is Alexis?

[A]. nine miles
[B]. seven miles
[C]. eight miles
[D]. six miles

Answer: Option D

It should be 8 miles. Because 8 is farthest away from frances and the distance of alexis from samantha would still be 1 miles.

@Ashish.

Closer than Samantha means that Alexis is closer to airport than samantha. It doesn't mean that Alexis is closer to Samantha. So the answer is six only. Please understand the question carefully.

M=10;
F=5;
S=7;

A is farther away than F but closer than S.
So, A=(7+5)/2;
A=6.
