Read the question carefully and choose the correct answer.

Nurse Kemp has worked more night shifts in a row than Nurse Rogers, who has worked five. Nurse Miller has worked fifteen night shifts in a row, more than Nurses Kemp and Rogers combined. Nurse Calvin has worked eight night shifts in a row, less than Nurse Kemp. How many night shifts in a row has Nurse Kemp worked?


A. eight
B. nine
C. ten
D. eleven

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Nurse Kemp has worked more shifts in a row than Nurse Calvin; therefore, Kemp has worked more than eight shifts.

The number of Kemp's shifts plus the number of Rogers's shifts (five) cannot equal fifteen or more, the number of Miller's shifts.

Therefore, Kemp has worked nine shifts in a row (5 + 9 = 14).
