Third Statements

In a third statement question, the test-taker is required to determine the validity of the third statement with the understanding that the first two statements are true. For example, Statement 1 may read, “Fin runs faster than Derrick.” Statement 2: “Derrick runs faster than Chuck.” Statement 3: “Chuck runs faster than Fin.” So if you accept the first two statements as fact, you can make some assumptions. Since Fin runs faster than Derrick, who runs faster than Chuck, it can be assumed that Fin is faster than Chuck. However, Statement 3 says that “Chuck runs faster than Fin.” By using the evidence presented in Statements 1 and 2, we can determine that Statement 3 is false.
