Mean Sara she lived at a city where, there is more infrastructure than her youngest sister Marlee. However Sara visited her cousin sister Marlee because she is older than her. And Sara she can able to live on her cousin sister Marlee due to her level of seniority. Mean the correct option : C&B.

But how does Sara being older has to do with anything?

According to me, it is option B and D. This of who is older or younger than who makes no sense at all.

Because the second sentence is stated that Sara is older than Marlee.

@Shweta.

1st person is Sara. "Her Younger Cousin Marlee" is specifically denoting Sara as "Her".

@Shweta,

Here we concern on marlee and saraa only. Not other members of their family. When comparing other three answers C is the correct one.

How can one say sara is older? it is given that "younger cousin marlee" which might mean that among all her cousins marlee is younger.

But its not that marlee is younger than saraa. It might be might not be need correct explanation to this.
