Given information:

- A, B, C, D, E, and F scored different marks in an examination.
- C scored more than only A and E.
- D scored less than only B.
- E did not score the least.
- The third-highest scorer scored 81 marks.
- E scored 62 marks.

Possible scores for C:

- C scored more than only A and E, which means that C's score is less than B, D, and the third-highest scorer.
- The third-highest scorer scored 81 marks, which means that the scores of the top two scorers are greater than 81.
- E scored 62 marks, which means that the scores of the remaining three friends (A, B, and F) are greater than 62.

Based on the above information, the possible scores for C can be calculated as follows:

- The highest scorer cannot be C since C scored more than only A and E.
- The second-highest scorer cannot be C as C scored less than the top two scorers.
- The third-highest scorer scored 81 marks, so C's score must be less than 81.
- E scored 62 marks, which means that the scores of A, B, and F are greater than 62. Therefore, C's score must be greater than 62.
- D scored less than only B, which means that D's score is greater than C's score.
- Therefore, the only possible score for C is 70.

Hence, option A (70) is the correct answer.
