 A grid of people (Posted on 2002-07-09)
Imagine a "grid" of people: some number of people arranged in a number of rows and columns in a rectangular formation.

We designate person A as the shortest person in the group of the tallest people of each row. We then designate person B as the tallest person in the group of shortest people in each column.

Who is taller, A or B?

To add onto your point, a 1x1 grid is a square not a rectangle, as the question states.
