the answer should be:

hansy is older than alex & alex is older than alister, hence the order will be:

Hansy>Alex>Alister

reason :

if alister is older than alex then, since no relation between Hansy & alister is given, the order cannot be determined from the given two clues.so, alex is older than alister. clue no. 2 both ways comes to the same conclusion than hansy is older than alex. that is the reason of my answer.
