The facts are:

3. V < R < J.
4. S < J.

By examining the left side, we can see that the answer is one of R, V or S. But if we examine the right sides, S and R appear there also. So we can strike them off. We are left with V for Varma as the answer.

Try to arrange the items in a mathematical increasing or decreasing order. Use abbreviations to make things simpler. If two names begin with same letter, make the abbreviation of two characters.

Facts given are:

1. K < V < H.
2. R < H < G.
3. R < K.

In all the three facts H, G and K appear on the right. So the tallest is either of them. The first fact defeats K, the second fact defeats H. So we are left with K as the answer.
