Using fist letter to denote the cities, we can arrange them in the order of elevations as ($,$ means order is not sure)

$\{\{S < P\}, K\}<G < D$

So, options (ii) and (iv) can be concluded whereas we are not sure about (i) and (iii).

Correct Option: C.
0 1. Pelling is at a higher elevation than Kalimpong $\implies\text{False}$
2. Kalimpong is at a lower elevation than Darjeeling $\implies\textbf{True}$
3. Kalimpong is at a higher elevation than Siliguri$\implies \text{False}$
4. Siliguri is at a lower elevation than Gangtok$\implies \textbf{True}$
