1. ## comparison

Hi,
Can we compare people's ages in this way?

For example, A is a baby; B is an adult; C is a junior; D is a senior. So, A is the youngest; B is younger than C; C is younger than D. D is the oldest.

Is it correct?

Many thanks

Shouldn't C be younger than B?

You can say these things, but I'm not sure what the context is.

Actually, it's a question on a test:
There are 5 cats and their ages are: a baby, an adult, a senior, and a junior. Now, a girl wants to choose a cat which is not too old or too young. Which cat will she choose?

I think we can't compare things in this way, cause the senior cat might be older than the baby cat and younger than an adult cat. Isn't it?

A kitten (a baby cat) - up to 12 months (1 year)
An adult cat - generally from 1 yr up
<--- Junior cat , probably. But I haven't heard that term before.
A senior cat is probably > 10 yrs old

She'll have to choose the junior cat or the adult, or the 5th cat which doesn't have an age.

I've never heard of a "junior cat" either.
