The function f(x) gives us Mr. Harrison's weight at x months. So f(6) tells us his weight at 6 months of diet and f(5) tells us his weight at 5 months of diet. The inequality f(6)<f(5) tells us Mr. Harrison's weight at 6 months is less than his weight at 5 months.

So, between two monthly physicals, Mr.Harrison put down weight. The option a is correct.
