CASE1 : X is third heaviest. Z is not the second heaviest student.W ,who is not the heaviest,is heavier than Z and weight of atleast one student lies between W and Z.So, W is second heaviest and Z is lightest. V is not heavier than W. V is second lightest student and Y is the heaviest student.
CASE 2: X is second heaviest. W,who is not the heaviest ,is heavier than Z and weight of atleast one lies between W and Z. W is third heaviest person and and Z is lightest. V is not heavier than W. V is second lightest and Y is heaviest
CASE 3 : X is heaviest. Z is not the second heaviest person. W who is not the heaviest ,is heavier than Z and weight of atleast one lies between W and Z. So, W can be second or third heaviest . Thus,either none or none person is heavier than Y.
