Ganga is taller than Rekha and Laxmi means it can be either:

  • Ganga, Rekha,Laxmi

                       or

  • Ganga,Laxmi,Rekha.

Mita is taller than Ganga means Mita is the tallest person among all. 

since laxmi is taller than Sana. so total 3 sequences are possible:

  1. Mita,Ganga,Rekha,Laxmi,Sana
  2. Mita,Ganga,Laxmi,Rekha,Sana
  3. Mita,Ganga,Laxmi,Sana,Rekha

Based on above order only option B & D satisfied.
