5. Which one of the following cannot be inferred?
1. The top three sectors accounted for more than 60% weight in the overall industrial production of the country.
2. The smallest three sectors accounted for less than 20% weight in the overall industrial production of the country.
3. Metals accounted for over a fifth of the overall industrial production of the country.
4. Mining, necessarily, could not have accounted for more than a fifth of the industrial production of the country.
