Read the logical riddle carefully and then select the correct answer from the given options.
Amy was born in 1997 & her younger sister Cheryl in 2001.
The age difference of the 2 sisters is therefore in any case;
A. Less than 4 years.
B. At least 4 years.
C. Exactly 4 years.
D. More than 4 years.
E. Not less than 3 years.
If you get the correct answer, share it with your friends on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social networking sites.
Answer: E. Not less than 3 years.
If you consider all options you will see in any case they cannot be less than 3 years.
To understand this better, let’s take 2 extreme months of the years 1997 & 2001.
Condition 1 (Maximum age difference):
Amy is born in January 1997 & Cheryl is born in December 2001.
In this case the age difference would be 4 years 11 months.
Condition 2 (Minimum age difference):
Amy is born in December 1997 & Cheryl is born in January 2001.
In this case the age difference would be 3 years 1 month.
So the only option that is satisfied by these 2 conditions is option E, which is that they can never be less than 3 years.
P.S. We can also explain this by going into exact dates but for simplicity we will stick to month as in any case the option E would be correct.
