Among the six persons P, Q, R, S, T and U each have different weight. U is heavier than 3 persons,

T is lighter than P. Q is lighter than only R. T is not the lightest. The second heaviest person is of 65 kg and the second lightest person is of 33 kg.

T is lighter than P. Q is lighter than only R. T is not the lightest. The second heaviest person is of 65 kg and the second lightest person is of 33 kg.

9. After arranging the person in ascending order of their weight find the person who comes immediately after T?

Explanation:

According to given data, the order of persons from heaviest to lightest is:

R > Q > U > P > T > S

R > Q > U > P > T > S

and Weight of Q = 65 kg,

Weight of T = 33 kg

If the people are arranged in ascending of their weight, then the order becomes:
