20.  Garima is taller than Sarita but not taller than Reena. Reena and Tanya are of the same height. Garima is shorter than Anu. Amongst all the girls , who is the shortest ?

Anu
Reena and Tanya
Garima
Sarita

```Answer

Answer: Option  D Explanation:Let the first letter of the name of each girl represent her height. Then,
Garima is taller than Sarita ==> G > S.
Garima is not taller than Reena ==> R ≥ G.
Reena and Tanya are of the same height ==> R = T.
Garima is shorter than Anu ==> A > G.
All the above indicate that Garima is either shorter than or equal in height to each of the girls except Sarita,
while Sarita is shorter than Garima. Thus, Sarita is the shortest. ```
