The equation can be setup as
J>K=N>M
L>M
But there is no relation between J, or L and K, N and L can be deduced.
(A) As written this is not deducible.
(B) As written this is not deducible.
(C) As written this is not deducible.
(D) Yes it is deducible. As J > M.
(E) False. K>M and not shorter than M.Hence (d).
