      Solution

According to the ranking C is taller than F but shorter than G i.e.G > C > F , also E is taller than both C & G but shorter than B and it is already given that G is taller than C so the ranking will be: B > E > G > C > F Since F is the shortest so he will not play snooker, also it is mention that it does not play Volleyball and Badminton so the game left for him is chess. D is ranked 2ndso it is taller than B, E, G, C and F. The only person left is A so it will be tallest and it will play snooker, and G will play the only game left i.e. Badminton.
