Correct Answer - Option 3 : Data in both statement I and II together are sufficient to answer the question.

According to the given information,

Statement (I): D weighs more than only two people. E weighs more than A but less than B.

So,

_ > _ > D > _ > _

B > E > A

Statement (II): A weighs more than C but less than E. E is not heavier than B.

So,

E > A > C

B > E

Combining both the statements,

B > E > D > A > C

Therefore, Data in both statement I and II together are sufficient to answer the question.

Hence, option 3 is the correct answer.
